Testing Season & Motivation

Hornet Family,

All year, we work to educate and inspire your students to reach new milestones and achieve their academic goals. As we head into the testing season, your students will be asked to demonstrate the knowledge they have acquired, and to highlight their abilities in a variety of ways. Very soon, your daughter/son will be taking the NWEA, M-STEP, or PSAT8. These tests provide valuable information for your student, for our building, and for our district. It is important that students understand the significance of these tests, and are truly putting forth their best efforts.

As we move towards our testing dates, please encourage your student to work hard on these assessments, and to truly show their knowledge. A good test day starts with a good night's sleep and breakfast, even our picky eaters need fuel in their tank to perform their best.

As a staff, we are excited to see the results of our students' hard work and effort. In partnership with you, we feel confident that our students will have positive results.

Our NWEA testing begins tomorrow, March 12th. Here is the NWEA testing schedule:

NWEA Math Testing – March 12th & 13th (In Math classrooms)

NWEA Reading Testing – March 17th & 18th (In ELA classrooms)

NWEA Language Testing – March 24th & 25th (In Science classrooms)

PSAT/8 testing will be on April 14th (8th grade only). M-STEP testing will take place at the end of April and into May. Future emails will be sent providing more detail regarding both PSAT/8 and M-STEP.

Ultimately, please encourage your students to do their best and do so without stress!
