Ohio Achievement Assessment & Spirit Week

Towards the end of the month, the Ohio Achievement Assessment will be administered.  The students have been working towards these assessments all year and the teachers are doing their utmost to help them be successful.

The schedule for testing is below.  We will test each morning 8:45-12:00.  It is extremely important that your child be present and on time during testing days.  As an incentive, all students who are present during ALL tests will be permitted to attend a celebratory dance on May 7th.   NOTE:  In order for students to attend, they must not have to make up any test due to an absence or being tardy.

Testing Dates:

  • Tuesday, April 20th          3rd, 4th and 5th grade reading
  • Thursday, April 22nd       3rd, 4th and 5th grade math
  • Tuesday, April 27th         5th grade science
