Attention 4th and 8th Grade Parents

As you may have heard, all student in grades 3-8 will be participating in the Smarter Balanced Field Test for English Language Arts and Math this spring. Since the Smarter Balanced test does not currently offer a Science portion, student in grades 4 and 8 will also participate in the MontCas Science test; this is a traditional paper and pencil assessment. Students at Elysian will take the test next week on March 19-20th. This assessment will take just under 3 hours and will be administered in 3 sections (1 section on the 19th and 2 on the 20th). Students will begin testing at 8:45 both days. Please make sure your son or daughter is well rested, has a good breakfast, and is on time each day. We appreciate the opportunity to educate your child and pledge to provide a stress free and comfortable testing environment. Please check out for more information about the Smarter Balanced and MontCas assessments. As always, feel free to call me with any questions or concerns.
