This week we will begin taking Iowa Tests, we will be testing daily for the next two weeks. These are standardized tests made up of many subtests so we will be taking two or more tests each day depending on the daily schedule. In order to help students through this process please make sure they go to bed early and get plenty of rest. All students should eat breakfast before they come to school because we often do not have snack until after at least one subtest. Make sure they have a small snack and water. The students need to be at school before the second bell (8:30am) because they need time to unpack and get ready so we can begin right after prayer, testing will begin at 8:45am. Thank you for working together to create a stress free and positive environment for the students during testing.
