Highlights and Recognition

Dear Families,

Each month we strive to meet our mission of providing a caring, challenging environment where dedicated educators prepare students academically, socially, physically and emotionally. Here are a few ways our Tigers ROARED during the month of September.

  • Referrals for September of 2020 were down over 90% from September 2019. Tigers are meeting behavior expectations and make good choices each day.
  • Test is proud to be partnering with Josh Holderman who will be bringing "The Real Deal" to Test Intermediate. This virtual program will create real talk around real problems with REAL solutions to intermediate students. Look for more details to come.
  • Student fall sports continue and our athletes are working hard to represent Test in swimming/diving, cross country, volleyball and football.
  • Our students earned over 65,000 positive LiveSchool points since August 12th!

As we move into the month of October we look forward to many more positive academic and social experiences for all our Test tigers! #weRtest #tigerup
