SCHOOL NEWS

8th Grade Science CMT, Tuesday, March 17th

This coming Tuesday, our eighth grade students will have the opportunity to demonstrate knowledge of the foundational science concepts along with more advanced scientific procedures and thinking that they have learned in grades six through eight. The Science Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT) for our eighth grade scholars will run from 8:52 to 10:22AM. Other academic periods will be abbreviated to accommodate testing. The test helps the Science Department know what they are doing well, and determine areas for improvement or increased emphasis. Please encourage your students to get a good night’s rest and to eat a healthy breakfast the day of the test.
