Mercury Monday Memo

April 29, 2013


STAR Testing This Week

STAR testing of Mercury site-based 2nd through 6th grade students will be held THIS week, April 29 - May 3. We will have a minimum day schedule all week, with dismissal at 11:45am each day. Kindergarten and 1st grade students will have a lunch period before dismissal.

Be sure that your child has a good night's rest and a nutritious breakfast each day before testing. Arrive at school on time so that your child is ready to begin testing. If your child arrives once testing has begun, he/she will need to remain in the office for that session and will be scheduled for make-up testing on Thursday or Friday afternoon.

We want to reach our goal of 100% participation in the STAR tests so students will earn these rewards:
  • Free Dress Fridays for the rest of the school year!
  • SuperSTAR Celebration
