These tasks and events all happen with volunteers who "just show up". They know the job needs to be done, and it gets done with superb attention to detail. There is nothing like being a Husky. Dare to be remarkable!
Well done to all of the 8th grade students, as they made it through their first PSAT! I am quite proud of them and hope they take a moment to also be proud of their hard work. Thank you to all of the teachers and Mrs. Bunka and Mrs. Nabozny for helping me proctor this very long day!
Next week begins M-STEP testing. This will take place over the course of four weeks, with specific grades scheduled on specific dates. On these specific dates, each grade level will test in one content area only. Here is an overview of what will take place over the next four weeks:
Third graders will take ELA and Math, each on separate days.
Fourth graders will take ELA and Math, each on separate days.
Fifth graders will take ELA, Math, Science, and Social Studies, each on separate days.
Sixth graders will take ELA and Math, each on separate days.
Seventh graders will take ELA and Math, each on separate days.
Eighth graders will take Science and Social Studies, each on separate days.
Teachers are making sure students are prepared and students are working hard to be prepared. I know they will be amazing! Dare to Be Remarkable!
Here is a copy of the testing schedule. Please try to remind your child of the importance of the spring assessments.
