Please make sure your students get a great night of sleep, and eat a healthy breakfast before coming to school on these days!

As we all know, test taking is a skill students have to learn. If you would like your child to be start practicing for the Spring MAP test at home, this is a great resource to use! Simply click the RIT scores your child falls in and have them work on the different concepts they need to improve on!
