ISTEP+ Part 2 begins next week!

Fourth grade will begin with math the morning of Monday, April 17th, and third grade will begin the following morning on the 18th. Third and fourth grade will test until Friday, April 21st. Please try not to schedule any appointments during this week if at possible.

Since we are completing ISTEP+ Part 2 on iPads, we ask that they come to school completely charged each day, Monday through Friday. Your child’s 3rd/4th grade teacher will be providing more information about this as well.

Breakfast and routine are important for every part of the year, but they are especially important on weeks such as these when anxiety can run high. Encourage your child to simply do their personal best and stay positive! We’ve got this! We’ve worked so hard this year, and we are prepared to show what we know. Thanks for your support!
