Smarter Balance Testing happening in April and May. Third, fourth and fifth grade students will be tested during the months of April and May as they do the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium or SBAC. Third grade students will be tested in math and reading, fourth grade students will be tested in math, writing and reading and fifth grade students will be tested in math, reading and science. We ask that parents help their students by making sure your child gets plenty of sleep each night during testing, that you reassure your child if they are apprehensive about the test and that you encourage them to do their best and not be upset if there are questions they can't answer. We also ask that you make sure your student gets to school on time during testing, as well as make sure they are in school on testing days. Click here to see a sample of the test your student will be taking, once there click on the blue box that reads Go to the Tests and sign in as a guest. From there you'll be able to select the grade of the test you would like to see.
Just the other day, the windows of the Compass High School gym were wide open, letting the classic Stevie Wonder song Uptight blast out over the the playground as the students at McClure Elementary School kicked around the soccer ball at recess.
