Our 4th and 5th grade students will be participating in Blind Benchmark tests in Reading and Math on Wednesday, November 17th, and Thursday, November 18th. These tests will help teachers gauge the progress of this year’s students in these subjects. Obviously, not all skills have been introduced as we have more than half of the year remaining. Consequently , scoring will take this into consideration. Benchmark tests are NOT for a grade, but rather for teaching and planning purposes.
Because these tests are so important and provide helpful data, please make sure that your child gets a good night’s rest and a good breakfast. We anticipate a great day!
