REMINDER! Smarter Balanced Testing Continues
Our Smarter Balanced Testing is now open for our 3rd through 5th graders and will continue into the month of May.  Please make sure that your students are on time each day, as well as sleeping well and eating a healthy breakfast each morning! Also, please make every effort to schedule appointments for after school hours; this will minimize disruption to not only your student, but to their classmates as well. Finally, we will be allowing visitors/volunteers on campus during the testing period, but we ask that you be quiet as you’re moving around the campus.
