MYP update of the week

MCA tests are starting for reading, math, and 8th grade science classes. These tests will take place over the next two months in students' ELA, math, and science classes. It is important for students to strive to be balanced as they take these tests so that they are physically well-rested, emotionally calm, and intellectually prepared for the tests. Talk to your student about how they can be mentally, emotionally, and physically prepared for these tests as they happen during the next two months.

This week at Ramsey

In Ms. Fontana's ELA Workshop 7 class, we have been preparing for the MCA reading test, which will we take on Monday, March 6-Wednesday, March 8.
