  • EOG Dates

    Parents, EOG dates are fast approaching! Click the headline to see the full schedule. Please help your 3rd-5th grade child do their best to be prepared for the day by making sure they are well rested, eat a good hot breakfast, and are on time for school each day of testing. Also, please do not plan to check your child out before 2:00 if you need to check them out early on testing days. For parents who like to eat lunch with students, testing days are quiet days so you may want to choose alternate days.
