Georgia Milestones

Posted on 10:51, Sunday, March 29

The Georgia Milestone Testing window this year is from April 16th-April 30th.  Since we will be testing all of our students online this year, it is going to take us eleven days to get everyone tested.  Please check out the schedule below for when your child will be testing.  It is very important that your child is at school every day when their grade-level is testing.  As testing will start first thing in the morning (8:00) and include afternoon testing sessions, it is essential that students be on time to school each morning. Except for emergencies, parents should refrain from checking students out from school before the regular dismissal time.  Due to testing, lunch and activity schedules will vary each day.  Please make sure your child gets a good night's sleep and breakfast each morning so they will be ready to do their best.
April 16th-22nd: 4th Grade testing
April 20th-24th:  3rd Grade testing
April 23rd-29th:  5th Grade testing
Thank you for your support!

The media center is collecting paperback chapter books for our Book Swap scheduled to begin on May 11th. For every 2 gently used paperback chapter book donated, a student will receive 1 book credit to shop at the Swap. So....teachers, students and parents, check your bookshelves, closets, basements and attics for children's chapter books and bring them to the media center. At the Book Swap, students will be able to get books for summer reading! We would like every student to come away from the Swap with at least one book so please support this event by bringing in your books. See you there!
