State Testing Week: SC READY and SC PASS
Students in grades 3 through 8 will take assessments called the South Carolina College- and Career-READY Assessments (SC READY) in the areas of reading and writing, and mathematics. Students in grades 4 through 8 will also take the South Carolina Palmetto Assessment of State Standards (SCPASS) in science and social studies. These assessments will be given from April 25-May 5.
Please put these dates on your family’s calendar. It is very important for your students to be at school and on time because all test sessions are mandatory. Students who are absent or tardy on test days will have to make up the tests at a later date.
These assessments will provide important information about how students are progressing at their current grade level and how they are progressing toward future college- and career-readiness. These scores will help your student’s teacher understand where your student is succeeding and where your student needs to improve.
As your child prepares to take SC READY and SCPASS tests, help us make your child feel confident and comfortable by making sure your child goes to bed early, gets a good night’s sleep, eats a good breakfast, and arrives at school on time.
Thank you for your support!

Energy Bus Principle #7 - Enjoy the Ride!
When life and work are fun you don’t get tired. Do you ever remember getting tired when you were playing as a kid? It never even came to mind. The same is true when you are energized by doing work that matters with people you like. Make sure you take the opportunity to seize each day, be happy with what you are doing in life and enjoy the ride. You only get one ride!
