I'm so sorry!

You all were great about being flexible with computer lab times while we finished CogAT with the 3rd grade classes. I need your help, one more time. Kindergarten needs 45 minute time slots to administer a test. I have been in touch with several of you and each were sweet enough to let us use your lab time. Lab times for the next 2 weeks are posted outside the lab, as well as here. Be sure to look at your time to see if it has been altered in any way. Thank you so much!!!
