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 October.

  • Referrals for October 2020 continued to decline. Tigers are meeting behavior expectations and make good choices each day.
  • Test is proud to announce that they were once again awarded the Stamm Koechlein Family Foundation Grant. This grant will support our PBIS programs and provide professional development for our faculty and staff.
  • Students participated in Red Ribbon Week, a national program dedicated to raising awareness against drug abuse. #RedRibbonWeek2020 #drugfreeinwaynecounty
  • Our students earned over 217,000 positive LiveSchool points since August 12th!

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