Smarter Balanced Testing in May



During the month of May, 3rd, 4th and 5th graders will be taking the Smarter Balanced test in math and English Language Arts (ELA). Students in grade 5 will also take the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) in science.

We appreciate your help by making sure your child attends school each day of testing and is well rested. Please provide a nutritious snack, as there will be a snack break during the testing time frame. The schedule for testing is as follows:

5th Grade ~ May 2 - May 11

4th Grade ~ May 22 - May 26

3rd Grade ~ May 15 - May 19
