Forward Testing begins on Monday

Our students and staff have been working hard in preparation for the upcoming Forward Test. Testing begins on Monday, March 20th. 5th and 6th grades will test on Monday, March 20th, Tuesday, March 21st, and, if needed, Wednesday, March 22nd. 7th and 8th grades will test on Thursday, March 23rd and Friday, March 24th. If you have any questions about the testing schedule, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Along with the testing dates, I wanted to share a movenote I created for the students and staff regarding testing, and more importantly, giving your best in all that you do. We have developed a schedule that will allow students to focus for shorter periods of time during testing, creating a better opportunity to do their best and give their best effort. Please encourage your child to do their best during the Forward Exam and during all that they do, whether it's school related or not.
