TEAM SUCCESS NEWSLETTER
It seems hard to believe that we are rapidly approaching the end of the school year! May also marks our final testing season for the year, when our students are taking the end-of-the year tests that matter most. Please make sure that your child is in school every day, on time and ready to learn.
Please make yourself familiar with the important testing dates below and help your student be as prepared as possible to show what they know on the tests. Make sure they get enough rest and keep a positive attitude this month.
Team Success is once again offering Saturday School for students in tested subjects in grades 3-11. We have our last two Saturday Schools in May, so make sure your student takes advantage of these nine additional instructional hours this month. Details below.
