REMINDER: Smarter Balanced(SB) testing will occur May 4-11 for Grade 5 and May 15-23 for Grade 6. All grades will do SB make-ups May 24-26th. All students will need their headphones. For sanitary reasons we strongly suggest that students bring their own headphones to test with during Smarter Balanced testing.   We have found that some Apple headphones (used for phones) do not work well on the computers.   Thanks for sending in your child with headphones.
