Testing Information

Below is a list of important dates you will need to know for the upcoming weeks. Testing will begin the week of April 18th and will continue through to May 6th. It is of the utmost

importance that your child is at school each and every day we are scheduled for testing, as make-ups can be extremely difficult to schedule. Please make sure your child gets plenty of rest during these weeks and a healthy breakfast each morning. These tests are important not only for your child, but for our whole school to show growth and improvement.
