Scantron Winter Assessment

During the month of January, we will be conducting the Scantron Assessment for our students in grades 2-5. These assessments will help to measure the progress your students have already made this year after a full semester of instruction. The Scantron data will inform us of the progress that each student has made toward achieving a full year of academic growth. Our goal is to ensure that every student in our school receives high-quality instruction each day. This data will help us to determine our next steps in the journey of teaching and learning for your children. If you have any questions about the assessments or your child's progress, please feel free to contact the school.

Please help us to have a successful testing period by doing the following:

1) Encourage your child to do his/her best

2) Send your child to school each day on time ready to focus and work hard

3) Ensure that your child has a good breakfast - at home or at school

4) Remind your child that the test is to show his/her teachers and parents how much he/she has learned so far this school year


We had a successful week of testing for our 4th and 5th graders last week. Assessments for 3rd grade will continue this week.
