Testing Season

Testing season is upon us. We have 2 different types of tests that your child will take this spring. MontCAS is a state-wide assessment, taken by all 4th - 8th graders in the state of Montana. At Lewis & Clark this will be March 7th & March 12th.

The other test is the NWEA MAP test. This is an assessment that your child takes both in the fall and spring. It's purpose is to measure their academic growth during the school year. In 6th grade, these tests also have another purpose - they are used to help place 6th graders into the appropriate Math and English classes as 7th graders!

Please send your child with a healthy snack on these days and make sure they have a healthy breakfast!
