News for the week of March 27th:
-State mandated tests (called PEAKS) will be next week. Tuesday and Wednesday the tests are scheduled for the morning and the afternoon sessions . On Thursday only three grades will be tested for Science. These tests are to assess where our students are compared to other students in the state. We expect the students to perform the best they can on each test. Their grades will not be affected.
Only 3-10th graders are tested but all other grades are not excused and should attend school.
Hot Breakfast on Tuesday-Thursday during testing week. There will be hot breakfast on the three days of testing. Make sure the kids show up around 8:30. We don't want them to be late for class. I hear there will be eggs and bacon and pancakes on at least a couple of those days. Bernadette is looking forward to making a good meal for our our kids so they can think clearly for their tests.
