2. We have begun our final round of NWEA assessments next week. All grades K-10 will participate in this online assessment. See the attached letter that can explain the process and what to expect.

3. Governor Holcomb signed a bill this week that changed the date for kindergarten eligibility. As a result, children that will turn 5 on or before September 1, 2019 are now eligible to enroll.
