Student TED Talks will be on Friday, May 15 in the Hixson auditorium from 9:00 am until about 12:00 pm. We will have a schedule made soon so that you will know the approximate time frame when each student will be presenting. We are in the process of slotting kids this week.
MAP testing is this coming Friday and Monday. ALL STUDENTS need HEADPHONES to take the test. Part of the test is auditory and students must be able to listen to the auditory parts by themselves. We test in the morning each day.
Algebra readiness test for next year's math courses will be given tomorrow and Thursday during the kids' regular math classes. All kids should have a pencil for the test.
We have some information about the last day of school activities. From 11:00 am until 2:00 pm, we will be going to Sports Fusion in Chesterfield. You can see the letter explaining the trip by clicking this link. A copy of the permission slip can be found at this link. The lunch that is provided includes two slices of Papa John's pizza and a bottle of water. Students can opt out of the provided lunch, reducing the cost of the trip by $3.00. There is a snack bar at Sports Fusion where kids can buy food and of course students are welcome to bring their own lunches.
