PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE ~ 4.24.15

Dear Southworth Families,

This May we begin our State testing for grades 3-6 on our new Smarter Balanced Assessment.  We will be kicking this off with an assembly on May 1st to get the kids excited about showing what they know and try to take some of their test anxiety away.  Below is a schedule for when students will be taking their exams.  Please make sure your student gets plenty of rest the night prior to taking this test and gets a good breakfast.  If you have any questions about testing please contact Mr. Cook or your son or daughter’s teacher for more information.
