Our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students finished up their English Language Arts State Tests this week, we are incredibly proud of our students for their hard work! Math testing will begin in two weeks.

Our 4th graders also had a young entrepreneurs showcase in which they created their own small businesses, the students loved it!
