[04/03/19]   State Testing is coming up at GMSE. The dates are as follows:
LA Test: 4/9 & 4/11
Math Tests: 4/16 & 4/18
Science Tests (8th grade only): 4/22 & 4/23

Please do your best to make sure your child:
1. Is in school and on time on that day
2. Gets a good night sleep the night before
3. Has a good breakfast prior to testing

We will (on days with dry weather) take the students to the track for a morning walk prior to school. We will also, with your help, offer breakfast bars as a snack to supplement their breakfast from home (signups coming soon!).

The kids are READY, we just want them to be as present, awake, fed and confident as possible. Thanks for your help.
