Weekly Tests

Your child will be taking a weekly test every Monday. Tests will alternate between Math and Humanities. Math tests will cover homework from the previous two weeks. Language Arts/Reading tests will be based on skills taught in class from the previous two weeks.

A Few Reminders


  • Math Homework: Scholars need to complete their nightly math homework and bring it completed to school each day.
  • Reading Homework: Scholars need to read for twenty minutes each night. Scholars also need to write a reading response in their reading homework journal three times a week. Reading response prompts can be found in their notebook.
