    This week is ITBS testing! I want our kids as focused on testing as possible. Because of this, we will have NO academic work due for the next five days. Due to the testing, I chose to adjust our research project schedule just a bit. Students will be receiving their drafts back tomorrow (Monday) and will have the next two weeks to make changes before turning their final drafts in on May 8th. I have spoken with our students about this, and they are all on board (of course!). Also, it’s going to be REALLY nice outside this coming week! When our kids aren’t testing, we’ll most likely be outside to give them needed breaks.

    Finally, please try your best to have your student at school ON TIME during our testing week. Thank you for helping us out!
