Standardized Testing

We will be continuing our annual standardized testing in the elementary grades over the next two weeks. As you know, we simply use this as an additional assessment tool to measure our curriculum. We encourage our students to get a good night's sleep, eat a nutritious breakfast, be at school on time, and make their best efforts.

We will be conducting testing for 1st Grade the week of April 24th and Kindergarten the week of May 1st.

Summer Specialty Camps

Our students in Intermediate and older will be receiving information on our summer specialty camps today. As a reminder, the specialty camps, including but not limited to, swim lessons, cooking camp, Lego camp, art camp, fishing camp, and much more, will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.

Please look at the listings for information on the camp, location, appropriate age groups, and pricing. The fees must be submitted with the registration forms.
