Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome back! I hope you all had opportunities to “Sharpen the Saw,” and have enjoyed the nice weather. Self-renewal is important, because we all need to recharge our mind, body,and soul.

This year, Sage Testing for Math and Science is scheduled for April 24th, 25th and May 1st and 2nd. Please have those dates on the calendar to minimize any tardies and absences on those dates. Students are strongly encouraged to bring their own headphones during those testing dates. Thank you.

Please continue to check Aspire Gradebook weekly, and as regularly as possible with your child, to teach them to be responsible and to take ownership of their learning.

  • Volume of 3D shapes
  • Volume of 3D shapes without images
  • Volume of rectangular prisms (imperial) – multiple choice
