HMS Bearcat Bulletin
A Note from Ms. Buschmann
We have almost made it to our short Spring Break. Once we return, MAP testing will begin. While we sincerely believe that students are much more than a test score, this is the way the state has chosen to measure academics. We want students to be able to put their best foot forward on the test by getting adequate rest, a good breakfast, and by attending school on the day of the test. Keeping this normal schedule, rather than having to be pulled from class for a make-up exam provides a better testing environment. HMS will be testing from Wednesday, April 24 through Friday, May 10. The first week will be the science test for 5th and 8th-grade, followed by testing for all grades, 5-8, in English Language Arts during week 2 of testing and Math the third week of testing.
The make-up days for the snow/ice days we have had so far are February 18; April 18; and May 16, 17, 20, 21 and 22.
