  • CRCT
    Students in 3rd - 5th grades will be taking the CRCT test on April 24th, 25th, 28th, 29th, and 30th.  Attendance is mandatory.  Ensure that your child has had a proper amount of rest, eats a healthy breakfast, and arrives to school on time.  All students have the option of eating a free breakfast on the CRCT mornings. We ask that parents do not visit the building on those mornings as we establish a testing environment that will reap the highest quality results.   Testing students may also bring a small, healthy snack that can be eaten very quickly.
