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 December.



  • Students at Test have earned over 650,000 positive LiveSchool points since the beginning of the school year making Test a positive place to learn and grow.
  • National Honor Society sponsored a canned food drive through spirit week collecting over $500 worth of food for Circle U Food Pantry.
  • Our music students showcased their hard work and talent through multiple performances through the holiday season.


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

Word of the Month

Thanks to a partnership with The United Way and #abetterwaytobe, Test Intermediate will focus on a word each month. Our value this month is knowledge. Knowledge is learning something new so you can be better at whatever you do. School is all about acquiring knowledge but you can learn anywhere, anytime. This month remember "Education is the best provision on the journey to old age." ---Aristotle
