Tuesday, April 16th our fourth and fifth graders will be testing on M-Step. April 17th our third graders will begin testing.

Here is the PowerPoint link to the parent presentation for those unable to attend: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1VMLZb8FRRIl-5L_rCip_sZwf8xbPJeJaSC-aW0Co9e0/edit?usp=sharing This PowerPoint has the entire testing schedule.

Important information:

  • Per the Michigan Department of Education, Smart watches may not be worn during testing.
  • Attendance is extremely important. Please make sure your child attends school and is on time.
  • We will provide a snack. However, some students prefer to bring their own. Potato chips, cookies, candy, and similar snacks are not allowed during testing or even on regular school days.
  • Students should bring a water bottle.
  • Please make sure your child gets to bed early and has a good breakfast. Breakfast at school is served beginning at 8:35.
  • On their first day of testing, all students will receive a note of encouragement from a staff member. If you would also like to write your child a note please drop it off in the office. We have note cards available if you would like to write your note here.

Please contact Mrs. Timpf with any questions you may have.
