NWEA Testing

We will take NWEA on Monday and Tuesday. Please remind your child to take their time and try their best.


If your child is absent they will finish anything up on Wednesday. My goal is to have all of the kids finished by Thursday, May 11th.


This test will show growth from the beginning of the year until now. Once all 2nd graders are done testing I will email results home.


I'm going to let the kids have a piece of peppermint hard candy to suck on during testing. If you do not want your child to have one please let me know.


I know that all of the kids can meet their goals.


Thanks for encouraging your child to do their best at home.
