Annual Spring Smarter Balanced Assessment Begins!


Our annual "Smarter Balanced Assessment" (SBA) Testing begins the week of April 3rd for our students in Grades 3, 4, 5, and 6.  Parents, please do your part to ensure that your child, regardless of grade level, attends school every day, on time, and in school uniform.  Doing so will likely help our students demonstrate continued growth on these tests.
