1.  Ohio Academic Assessment - 3rd, 4th & 5th Grades:
        Tuesday, April 26:  Reading (Grades 3-5)
        Thursday, April 28:  Math (Grades 3-5)
        Tuesday, May 3:  Science (Grade 5)

It is important for each student to have very good attendance during this time.  While we use the dates in between the test dates for test make up sessions, we really want to see all of our students here all day, every day during their scheduled test time.  These tests, along with attendance, comprise parts of the state report card that are issued to all public schools in Ohio.  Results will be mailed home in August.

Please be sure your child gets enough rest and they eat a good breakfast and lunch.  The results of these test are important, however, it is even more important for the children to know that we are all going to be proud of them if they do their best.
