Upcoming Mid-year iReady Assessment

Students will be taking the iReady Mid-year Assessment during class on Tuesday, 1/19/21, and Wednesday, 1/20/21, beginning at 8:30 a.m. At this time, adult help may be needed to log in to iReady while remaining on the Zoom meeting.
Please help your child prepare by having them get plenty of rest the night before, eating a healthy breakfast, and arriving to class on time. It will be critical for students to complete this assessment independently to demonstrate what they have learned so far. The iReady assessment will have some difficult problems that your child may not know, but please encourage them to answer the best that they can. Parents, siblings, and others should NOT be helping during the assessment.
