State Testing at Knox!

Hello Knox Families!


We will be starting State Testing or CAASP. Our students have not taken the SBAC state test in 2 years, so please remind them of the importance of taking the test seriously and not rushing through it.


We celebrate this chance for all students to show and demonstrate their learning. We know our students will do great!


Please save this newsletter for testing updates.


Sincerely,

Principal Potter


GO BULLDOGS!!
