LOCAL MEASURES TESTING – GRADES K-2
This week marks the third week of Local Measures testing for our Kindergarten through Second Grade students. Over the two weeks, our students will be tested in reading and math. Please ensure your children to get plenty of rest and enjoy a healthy breakfast before testing so they are able to do their very best on each assessment!
CAASPP TESTING – GRADES 3-6
- CELL Phones and Smart Watches will be collected by teachers during testing.
- BE ON TIME each day! Students who are late will have to do makeups.
- Visitors and/or Volunteers are not allowed in the classroom during testing.
- Classrooms will not be interrupted during testing. Students may not leave the classroom once testing has started. (Check doctor and dentist appointments)
- Send a Snack Bag for your child during the testing week: Granola Bars, Crackers, Pretzels but NO CANDY, Cheetos, Taki’s (refrain from things that are messy or sticky).
We need your input again, please. We hope all families will participate. Topics on this important survey include school appearance, finances, technology, instruction, as well as attitudes about safety, transportation, climate, and communication.
Please make every effort to fill out this very important survey. Each year, we analyze the results of the survey. Your opinions count and we will thoughtfully and purposefully take your ideas to make our school a better place for children. The parent Hanover survey is available in English and Spanish. The parent link will take you to the landing page where they will be able to select the language of choice. Parent Survey Link
