Spring Testing Dates
All students in Grades 3-5 will be taking the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) this year between the dates of April 18th and May 11th.
5thgrade students will be taking the Science MSA on April 20th and 22nd (AM and PM).
It will be very helpful if you can avoid appointments which may take your child out of school during this time period. The timeframe for test administration is very short and make-up assessments will require missing instructional time.
If your child will be absent on the day of testing, please contact the school office at 301-863-4044 as soon as possible.
