Dear Patriot Families,

There is new, updated Bond information.  For our district wide Bond timeline, click here:

For our junior high Bond update information, click here:  Print Version of Junior High Timeline

Seventh graders will be tested in English language arts and mathematics using a computer. They will be assigned specific dates and times to take the M-STEP during the April 29 – May 24, 2019 online testing window. M-STEP will provide an accurate view of your child’s achievement levels and learning needs to help us identify areas where we can improve instruction and teaching.

As parents/guardians, you play an important role in your child’s academic success.

• Encourage your child to approach the M-STEP with a positive attitude.
• Ensure your child gets plenty of rest the night before, has a good breakfast, and comes to school on time each day.

**Check out our upcoming events below! 


Mrs. Antionette Hamilton,, Principal
