These tests help measure our children's educational progress and guide our teachers in their classroom approach. The students should be well-rested and have had a healthy breakfast on the days of these tests. See calendar for specific testing dates. It is important for students to be present on their designated testing days, as time does not allow for extensive make-up exams.
