Measure of Academic Progress Testing (MAP)

It's that time of year, where our students need to show what they have been learning in classrooms. Students are testing their Reading and Math skill levels this month.

The MAP test is scheduled for different times throughout the month for different grade levels. Parents, please talk to your students at home about the importance of taking the test also please make sure they are getting adequate rest during their testing times.

We are asking all parents to try and avoid absences or appointments if possible during these testing times. Thank You.
