Hi all -
We found out on Wednesday that our TCAP schedule was wrong so we have had to make some adjustments. I've rearranged the schedule and think we are back on track.
--Please keep in mind that 8th grade Presentations will be the first full week in May. Students should be working on those presentations on their own time. They all have the rubric. As we get closer to presentation window, students will be signing up for specific presentation times and dates. If you have questions about presentations, please send me an email.  Thanks
