SMARTER BALANCE TEST
This year we will not be giving the STAR test to students in grades 2-5. Instead we will be taking part in the pilot testing of the new Smarter Balance test. This new test is to reflect the new common core standards that have been adopted by the state. The test will be taken by 3-5 graders. I would like to invite you to visit the following website to practice the test with your child: http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sa/practicetest.asp.
Support our Mt. George Classrooms by donating funds on the Adopt-A-Classroom website. Donations allow our teachers to purchase much needed items for their classrooms. Thank you for your support!
