ERB Standardized Testing begins this week

–2nd-4th grades:November 3rd and 8th –5th-9th grades:November 3rd, 8th and 10th

Some tips to help testing days go well:

  • Make sure that your child gets to bed early the nights before school days so he can be alert.

           (Always a good idea!)

  • Feed your child a good breakfast; pack a good snack and lunch.
  • Express confidence in your child and encourage him to do his best.  This test is simply to see what subject areas he understands well and what areas could use more explanation.  

Tomorrow is Aluminum Can Day for Hope for the Hungry

Hope for the Hungry collects used aluminum cans and uses the money to help fund an orphanage in Haiti. If you would like to participate simply bring your bag of cans with you on Tuesday, Nov. 1 to the normal entrance / drop-off area on 5th St, and there will be a designated zone or pick-up truck where you can toss in bags of cans. Thanks for considering helping this orphanage!

Join us, won’t you?
