Last week, our 5th - 8th graders had English Language Arts (ELA) and math CMAS testing. Testing kicked off with our younger grades cheering on the older students as they walked to their first round of CMAS tests. Our middle school teachers did an amazing job creating fun events each morning and during breaks throughout the day to ensure our students were hyped up and excited for testing. 7th and 8th graders enjoyed some really fun competitions each morning and had some fantastic brain breaks in the afternoons. 5th and 6th graders had a lot of fun building catapults and ended the week with a fun competition to see who built the best one. This week our 3rd and 4th graders will be taking their ELA and math assessments, while 5th and 8th graders will complete their science CMAS testing.
