Although the fourth quarter will begin after the April break and staff is busy setting the stage for next school year, we still have several important events that will be taking place between now and the end of May. First, we would like to remind parents that Juniors will be taking the SAT on April 9th. This is an important test for our students. For Juniors, the SAT score can be used as college acceptance criteria. We encourage all students to get a good night’s sleep and wish our Juniors the best of luck!

April 30th-May 1st, all grade 7-8 students will take the ELA MCAS. Please encourage students to be thorough and to take their time on the exam. It is important that students get sufficient sleep and eat a healthy breakfast on testing days. Please also reassure them that they have prepared and continue to prepare for these exams and we are confident in their ability to do well. Students should bring a snack and their own water or water bottle as we have fountains with filtration systems.

We are also nearly at the time for the April spring break. Please enjoy a bit of time to rest, enjoy time with family and friends, and re-charge. Then, it is back to work to finish this year strong! We certainly cannot do the work that we do without your support!
