Spring Testing and Assessments

Here are some ways to help your student have the very best testing and assessment season:

1. Set an early bedtime.

2. Make sure your student eats a healthy breakfast (either at home or school).

3. Limit T.V., video game, and computer time.

4. Read with your child.

5. Encourage your student to play outside and get fresh air and exercise.

6. Make sure your child is present at school, try not to schedule appointments during this testing window.

7. Remind your child to do their best, take their time, and answer test questions to the best of their ability.




Assembly Antics Build School Spirit


Laughing and cheering all the way, teams of students and staff members participated in another fun relay. Relay teams of students had to navigate a course with a frozen pea in a spoon, then pass the pea off to a teammate. Their team's final task was for their staff member to eat an entire banana in record time.
