Highlights and Recognition

Dear Families,


Each month we strive to meet our mission of providing a caring, challenging environment where dedicated educators prepare students academically, socially, physically and emotionally. Here are a few ways our Tigers ROARED during the month of January.



  • Our students have earned over 400,000 LiveSchool points since the beginning of the school year. Our Tigers keep making positive choices each day.
  • To date over 300 positive office referrals have been issued to our students. #tigerup
  • Community partners continued to support Test Intermediate during January. A big thank you to Shawn Wright and Pat Heiny for their generous donations.
  • Our PBIS committee rewarded students with zero office referrals this month during lunch with games and activities. We are so proud of their behavior and academic achievements.


As we move into the month of February we look forward to many more positive academic and social experiences for all our Test tigers! #weRtest #tigerup

Thanks to a partnership with The United Way and #abetterwaytobe Test Intermediate will focus on a word each month. This month the word is kindness.
