As mentioned in the last Cable Connection, state CMAS testing will soon be upon us. This year, again, in an effort to minimize testing's impact on instructional time and the number of instructional days effected, we are going to have all students in the secondary testing at the same time. In order to do this, each student will test on their personal laptop. We will send out computer set up instructions later this week.

On all the testing dates, daily start and end times will be the same as our regular schedule. The exception is on Tuesday, April 10, High School students will be released after their PSAT/SAT around 12:15pm.

The girls and their ferocious defense won their district quarterfinal game Monday night versus DSST Green Valley Ranch by a score of 24-15. They play against Weld Central on Thursday night in the Semifinals of the district tournament. The girls are 12-8 and in the top 25 in the state's standings. The game is at Ft.
