During the spring of 2015 students in grades three through eleven took the Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) assessments for English Language Arts (ELA) and Math for the first time. These assessments were developed by the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC). Grade twelve students enrolled in Algebra 2 also took the PARCC math assessment. PARCC assessments in the future will be given annually during the month of April, and results will be available early in the summer each year.
The annual Hygiene Science Fair will be January 28 - 29, 2016. This is a great opportunity for students from every grade to find a topic that is interesting to them, to research it systematically, and to practice presentation-making and public-speaking skills. Working independently, or in teams of 2, students use the scientific method to make a hypothesis, develop a list of materials, write a procedure, collect data, and answer their question.
