March 4 & 5: Middle School Science Olympiad

CMAS Testing Dates

Our annual state student assessments begin in March. This year PK8 students will be taking CMAS (3rd-8th grade Language Arts and Math and 5th & 8th grade Science) tests. Each scheduled day of testing will include one online testing session of approximately 60 minutes.

8th Grade: March 22-25, 28-29, April 5-7
7th Grade: March 30-April 1, April 4-6

6th Grade: March 30-April 1, April 4-6

5th grade March 22-25, 28-29, April 12-14
4th Grade April 7-8, 11-14

3rd Grade April 7-8, 11-14

Students will only take one test on each of these days in our tech lab (unless they must take
make-ups). Our experience tells us that students test better with their class, so please try and schedule around these dates.

Open Arms of the Western Slope will be delivering lunch supplies for February Break to any child who needs it.

If you sign up, five days of lunch supplies will be dropped off at your house on the morning of Monday, February 21st. Lunch supplies will include: a loaf of bread, a jar of peanut butter and jelly, bananas, apples, and a box of snacks. Adjustments for food allergies or dietary restrictions can certainly be made. If you are interested please fill out this form: https://forms.gle/Hq2FpaBYpmaBicUy6

Big Little Hearts, a virtual grief support group

Join HopeWest Kids for Big Little Hearts, a virtual grief support group for adults who are supporting children or teens experiencing grief. The group is a safe and caring place to explore grief and its impact on the family.

Big Little Hearts offers education and support regarding the grieving process through topics of discussion, Q&A, handouts and activity ideas for families. We ask that participants commit to attending all six sessions in order to receive the full benefit of the support.

Big Little Hearts is a free community service offered by HopeWest. Registration is required.
