    PARCC Testing Dates

    Students will be taking the new Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessments this year.  The two week time window for testing in all three buildings will be Monday Feburary 23rd through Friday March 6th.  Please have students in attendance for these two weeks as tests are given on different days and schedules, but the two week window is the timeframe established by the State for administering all the exams.  Tests differ in length, but many are 60-90 minutes.  Students will be given specific directions at each building regarding specific tests and dates, but please mark these two weeks on your calendars now - start the day with a good breakfast and a good night's sleep, to be prepared to do your best!

    Here are a couple of places to look for PRACTICE tests for the PARCC assessments!

    Academic Boosters

    For many years, a small contingent has provided special awards for our students in grades K-12 as they progress and improve in their academic performance.  Many students have been inspired by the B.U.G. (bring up grade) awards, the candy, the notes of encouragement, and the special recognition received from this booster group each year.  Please consider helping to fund the efforts of the Academic Boosters, and more importantly, we'd like you to take part in this valuable way to recognize and encourage students in their academic progress.  If you'd like to know more about the Academic Boosters or find out how you can be a part - please contact Violet Gilmore at hill_gilmore@tccsa.net.  

    Labels for Education

    It is easy to help our school by participating in the Campbell's Labels for Education Program.  You can help by saving UPC codes from hundreds of varieties of Campbell's products you use every day.  Products like Campbell's soups, beans, tomato juices; Franco-American SpaghettiO's, pastas and gravies.  Also Pepperidge Farm Breads, cookies, crackers, and soups; Prego pasta sauces; Swanson broths; V8 vegetable juices and V8 Splash juices.  Check out the web site at http://www.labelsforeducation.com.  We need the UPC code, not just the label on all of these products.

    Box Tops for Education

    We are collecting "box tops" to be redeemed for money.  Many cereals, cake mixes, side dishes and boxed snacks have the "box tops for Education" coupons.  Clip them from the box and send it to school!  Thanks for your efforts.
