Dear Parent/Guardian

As partners in your child's education, it is important to ensure that they are prepared for each step along their educational journey.  One way to determine student preparedness is through assessment; therefore, we will be administering the English I and Algebra I End of Course tests to students on May 18-19, with make-up testing through May 22, 2015.  Your child will be taking the End of Course tests on the following dates:

                                               English I                   May 18 (Monday)
                                               Algebra I                  May 19 (Tuesday)


Congratulations to our 2015-2016 Teacher of the Year!!!
