George School's Family Update

May 4, 2018

Gearing Up for PARCC!

Just a reminder, next week 4th and 5th Graders at George School will be taking the PARCC assessments, in Language Arts and Math starting Monday 5/7 - Thursday 5/10, with make ups on Friday 5/11. 3rd Graders will be taking the PARCC assessments the week of 5/14-5/17 with make ups on Friday, 5/18, as needed. Grade 5 will take the NJSLA-5 in Science on 5/21 and 5/22 with make ups following. As you know, It is important that children arrive at school on time each day (students that arrive late will not be permitted to take their assessment and will have to take it on make up dates). The children should be well rested and have a good breakfast. This is their opportunity to show what they know. They've got this!
