The third graders will be taking the practice test for the IREAD-3 Tuesday morning, March 17th. Please be sure your third grader is well rested, has a good breakfast, and has an early and relaxing start to their day! As always, encourage your children to do their absolute best, to read every word carefully, and to recheck their work. If they do their best, we have every confidence in their ability to do a great job! If the test is not taken this week for any reason, your child will need to take it over the summer before being allowed to pass to the fourth grade. Sometimes absence cannot be helped due to illness, but please refrain from making Dr. appointments during school hours if at all possible. Thank you!
