Georgia Milestones Assessments

All students in grades 3-5 will take the Georgia Milestones Assessments (GMAS) during the weeks of April 20-29. You can help your student to be successful on these assessments by:


  • Ensuring that your student arrives to school on time.
  • Ensuring that your student gets plenty of rest each night.
  • Ensuring that your student has a good breakfast at home or school.
  • Encouraging your student to do his/her best on the assessment.


We will begin testing each day promptly at 8:30. Students who arrive late will be required to take the make-up assessment at another time. We appreciate your help to ensure that your child arrives on time to be able to test with his/her class.
