STAR testing for 2nd – 5th graders in language arts, math and science (science for 5th graders only) will take place from April 26 – May 6. We are holding weekly assemblies to get the students excited about the test, give them test prep strategies, and help them boost their confidence. You can help by making sure your students go to bed early, eat a healthy breakfast, and arrive to school on time. In addition, make sure to let them know that you believe they will do well on the test. Every bit of encouragement helps! Read More… »»
