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 November.



  • Referrals for November declined by 29% from October. Tigers are meeting behavior expectations and make good choices each day.
  • Test would like to thank the Crystal Dreams Foundation for their generous contribution to our Title I literacy night being held on December 7, 2020.
  • The Test community raised over $700 and hundreds of cans of food for Circle U Help Center. We are proud of the outpouring of support and compassion displayed by our students and faculty.
  • Our students earned 287,987 positive LiveSchool points since August 12th!


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