Friday, March 27th - ELA Session 2

Monday, March 30th - ELA Session 3


Make-up sessions March 23-April 1


We provide breakfast for all 3rd and 4th graders on testing days. We found that during past NECAP testing days, our students enjoyed time to socialize and dine with their grade-level peers on the mornings of state testing.


Please help your child to get a night of restful sleep and to arrive on time. Please also remind them that this test is just one of many ways that we chart their progress. There will be no pep-rally or assembly in advance as we try to make our testing days similar to each school day.


We will have an adjusted master schedule on all testing days. All students will attend Art, Music, Library, Spanish, Health, or PE, but the times may be changed.
