Your child will soon be taking the Spring Assessment.  You may assist us in the process by seeing that your child has plenty of sleep, has a good breakfast, and has a good mental attitude preceding test days.  Also, please do not schedule any doctor/dentist/hair appointments during testing hours.  Test results help us      provide a more complete education to all students.
