M- Step Testing

 We want our students to do their best and in order for that to happen, we recommend the following:

  • Be on time to school each day.  We will begin testing soon after they arrive.
  • Be sure your child is well rested during these next few weeks
  • Be sure they have a nutritious breakfast each morning before coming to school or that they are prepared to eat breakfast at school (cost $1.70)
  • Unless your child is sick, please be sure they are in attendance.
  • Help them to recognize the importance of doing their best, but help them to understand that there is no reason for them to worry.  They are all well prepared.

M-Step Dates:  
  • Fifth Grade:  April 11-29
  • Third Grade:  April 25-May 13
  • Fourth Grade:  May 9-May 27
