MCAS Schedule

We just completed our school-wide MCAS Practice test on Friday, and the students did fantastic. Please see the link below for our upcoming MCAS schedule. We are finishing up our MCAS Student Assemblies, where we remind them of the rules of testing, but also remind them that they are indeed ready. Please help your student remember to charge their Chromebook the night before testing, get a good night sleep, and start with a healthy breakfast!
