M-Step and MI-Access Testing Window Is Open

Welcome back! I hope everyone enjoyed a relaxing and safe Spring Break! Now that we are back, we have officially entered the state testing season.  These tests provide important information to our school so that we can continue to improve. We take these assessments seriously and want our children to perform to their best ability, however, we do not want them to be anxious or worried about them either.  You can help your child by emphasizing that they should do their best and their best will lead to success. Also, please make sure your child gets a good night sleep before testing. It is a good idea to limit screen time for at least an hour before bed to allow a more restful sleep. A good night sleep, a healthy breakfast, and strong effort will lead to a successful and lower stress season.  Here is a look at the tentative testing dates for our students:
