You can continue to help our students by taking the following steps on testing days:
- Limit evening activities prior to testing so that adequate time is provided for rest.
- Discuss the importance of testing with your son/daughter.
- Provide a nutritious breakfast.
- Ensure your child is present and on time each morning. If possible, please avoid scheduling doctor/dentist appointments during the testing period.
- Make sure students have their lunches and other items needed when they arrive at school. We cannot deliver any forgotten items to students on testing days.

PTSA Program on Student Stress, Anxiety, and Depression
Parenting is hard work and there is no doubt that the middle school years are particularly challenging. Kids are growing physically and emotionally at their own speed – some quickly, some slowly – each with their own unique circumstances. We want our kids to be prepared for high school, not just academically, but socially and emotionally as well.
Mark your calendars now for Tuesday, April 24th at 6:30pm when the PTSA will host a program for parents that will address stress and anxiety among middle school students (and the sources of stress, including, but not limited to bullying and social media).
Our speaker will be Dr. Noriel Lim, assistant professor at Emory University, who specializes in evidence-based approaches to the treatment of anxiety and depression among children, teens and adults.
Developing skills to cope with stress, anxiety and depression are critical, as there has been a documented rise in all three in recent years among middle and high school students.
