(5th grade will be testing on Tuesday and Wednesday)

#1- We will not receive test scores until the middle or end of May.

#2- I will not discuss with you how your child did on the test or the amount of time they took to take the test.

#3- No cell phones are permitted on the day of the test. Any child who brings a cell phone to school will have it taken up and returned to them after testing. This is done for test security reasons.

#9- A snack and bottle of water will be provided on Tuesday after testing. Please refrain from sending anything extra.

#10- Encourage your child to do their absolute best. We have worked so hard all year long for this very important day. Now is the time for them to shine and show what they know.

We will show the video below at our Monday morning assembly in the gym to motivate the students. Please don't show it to them. Let them be surprised with the viewing at the assembly.
