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 August.



  • All 8th grade students participated in Challenge Day, a national program dedicated to seeking understanding and ending differences created due to misunderstandings.
  • Test was the proud recipient of multiple donations supporting the nutritional needs of our students. We were also the PROUD recipient of a $3,000 Stamm-Koechlin Grant dedicate to increasing student preparedness for adult life. Our community cares for our Tigers.
  • Student fall sports began and our athletes are working hard to represent Test in swimming/diving, cross country, volleyball and football.
  • Our students earned over 175 POSITIVE REFERRALS during the month of August proving that they really do know how to ROAR!


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