ATI Benchmark Test 1

During the week of October 22, students will be taking the ATI Benchmark Test 1. Teachers will use the data collected to continue guiding instruction in the classroom so students can receive optimum academic growth. Please try to have your child in school all week to minimize disruption to their learning.

Red Ribbon Week

Our red ribbon committee has developed activities that they will implement throughout the week to promote a commitment on the part of everyone to be drug-free, alcohol-free, violence-free, and smoke-free.
