Aspire Testing, Wednesday-Thursday, April 17-18

Students in THIRD through TENTH grades will be taking ACT Aspire Assessments on Wednesday and Thursday of this week. The valuable data we gain from these assessments allows us to make evidence-based decisions when addressing your child’s strengths, areas for improvement, and growth potential. This can give you an early indication of his or her likely readiness for the future, providing time to address areas where improvement is needed. Measuring academic growth is necessary to keep your child on track for college and career readiness. Our students rise to the challenge and we ask you to encourage your child to do their best and get plenty of sleep the night before and eat a good breakfast. Testing will begin promptly at 8:10 each day; please make sure your student arrives to school on time. Students will not be able to enter the classroom if testing has begun.
