ACAP STATE TESTING

ACAP SUMMATIVE DATES: MARCH 15 - APRIL 30 (Spring break is April 5-9, so that week is out.)


-Remote and virtual students are also required to test! Due to the high security of the assessment, all students will be required to test on campus. You will receive more information on how this will take place, but for now, know that if your child is remote or virtual, they will not be testing with their regular class, but will be scheduled to test in an alternate setting.


-The State Department of Education requires that we reach a 95% student attendance rate for state testing. Therefore we need every student to test!

Breaking news!! We have decided that we will have a yearbook this year!! It will be very different from any yearbook in the past, but we believe this year should be documented, maybe more than any other year. More information to follow!

Here are a few of our 4th graders showing off their Making Cupid Fly activity while learning about static electricity. When a balloon is rubbed against fabric or hair, electrons are transferred to the balloon, giving it an overall negative charge. This negative charge attracts the tissue paper cupid, making it stick!
