Coloma Junior High
Week of September 20th, 2021
NWEA Testing - This Week
All students will begin testing on Monday for Math in their Math classes. Students have as much time as needed to complete the assessment and may work through it over a few class periods next week. We will begin the ELA assessment on Wednesday in the ELA classes. Most students take approximately 60 minutes to complete the assessment. This is a low stakes test, in that we just want to see where your child is at so that our instruction can be targeted.
You can help your student by insuring that they get a good night's rest before coming to school and bring a charged Chromebook.
