Testing will resume on Monday the 22nd with Science, followed by Math on Tuesday and Wednesday. PLEASE help your student to remember to get ALOT of sleep and eat well throughout these two weeks. The McLambs have been working SO HARD these past months and I want to see them do their very best. MOST IMPORTANTLY I want them to realize that while we want to show off how much we have grown, these are just tests and do not define us. I am so very proud of each and every one of your kiddos and their best is all I hope for. <3
