Message about BOG3 from your Assistant Principal
Next Wednesday, Sept. 9, we will have our state BOG3 test for all of our 3rd graders. This is a very important test because it measures the students' present level of performance in ELA. We want our students to do their very best.
The test is very important as well as your instructional time and instructional planning time. With this being said, Wednesday will be a regular schedule day except for guided reading, which will resume as testing is completed.
Please talk with your students to prepare them for no talking in the hallways during transition from one area to another. Please monitor students during bathroom time as well. We will be testing in the third grade classrooms, ESL room, EC room, guidance room, Title 1 room, and speech room.
I will make an announcement once testing is completed.
I appreciate everyone working together to make this a successful day for our third grade students.

3. Lunch times...We think we have a possible solution. Please see the attached Guided Reading schedule updates, lunch schedule changes, etc. We're modifying when second and fifth grades come to lunch. Also, guided reading times have also been adjusted.
