Our World Changers are Growing!

Help us by making sure our "World Changers" are well-rested and ready to show us how much they have learned! All students in Kindergarten-5th Grade will be testing in the areas of Reading and Math. MAP is a great pre-assessment for our state testing in May for grades 3rd through 5th. MAP testing will begin on March 18 and will conclude on April 2. Your World Changer will test two days during this time. Each homeroom will be sending out a specific schedule through Dojo or Remind to let you know when your World Changer will be testing.
