Project Extra Students

If you are a project extra student you will still attend on your regular scheduled day, but you will report to class for your scheduled MAP testing first. You will report to Mrs. Webb after lunch.

Be Ready & Prepared!

It is extremely important that you get plenty of rest and a good breakfast on testing days so you are rested and ready to give your best effort on your MAP tests.

Do not bring your cell phone to your testing classroom! You need to leave your phone in your locker.

Things you do need for testing! Earbuds, your charged chrome book and a calculator (some will be available in your classroom and you will have access to the calculator on your chrome book.

Expectations and More

All FMS students will be testing at the same time this year so you will remain in your classroom until all students are done with their tests. You will need to bring a book to read and be quiet while others finish.


FMS will need hallways to be quiet so that everyone can do their best and not get distracted. So, if your class is on a scheduled break you need to be mindful that other classrooms are testing.


Please be mindful of classrooms connected to your classroom that may be testing. (above,below, around)


Silent Hallways, PLEASE!
