1st Semester Benchmarks
During the first few weeks of January, the students will be taking benchmark assessments in each of their core classes. The math and reading benchmarks will be given during a school-wide benchmark setting, which will have the look and feel of EOG testing. The science and social studies benchmarks will be given during regular class time. Please encourage your children to do their best as it will help us measure their mastery of concepts from the first half of the year.
