The schedule for our testing is:
May 11 - Reading
May 12 - Math
May 17 - Writing
May 18 - Science - 5th grade only
As you schedule doctor appointments, days off, etc. please avoid these dates as much as possible. All students will need to take the tests and it is much easier for them to take the test with their classmates.
We will take a CLASS PHOTO and individual photos only for those who have purchased photos.
There will be a website link available on Monday that can be used for purchasing photos using a credit or debit. If you need a printed form to purchase with cash or check, please let Mrs. Burnside know. These forms AND money must be returned before the photographer takes the photo.
There will be NO makeup photo days.
