Testing Calendar 2018
The testing calendar on the right indicates what days and periods our students will be testing in ELA and Math. Please ask your child what periods he/she has ELA and Math so that you can know exactly what days he/she will be testing. You can click on the calendar image to be directed to the same calendar on our website.
Hourly Testing Schedule
In order to give students plenty of time to complete the state tests, we will be on a special hourly schedule during testing. Please note that during testing, students will not see every teacher every day. Please refer to the calendar to see which periods students will see each day.
