Benchmark Week Begins
Students in Kinder-2nd grade will be taking benchmark tests in reading and math the week of February 23rd. The data gathered from these benchmarks will assist the teachers in planning what they need to do to re-teach or tutor students who are struggling with various math and reading concepts. It is very important that your child be at school and well rested so he/she can put forth his/her best effort on these tests. These test are not for a grade and will not be reflexed on your child's report card. The purpose of these tests are to ensure that your child understands and is successful on the math and reading concepts they have learned about this year.
