Reminder to all Family and Consumer Science Students!!!
All middle school students will be taking the Iowa Test Of Basic Skills Test on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. It is extremely important that you get plenty of rest this week and eat nutritiously. Please eat breakfast as your brain needs fuel to take these tests. If you aren't a breakfast eater, at least have some juice and toast. Remember to eat a good lunch this week because you will have afternoon testing on one of your test days. Dress in layers as the gym can be a little bit cool, especially in the mornings. It's always a good idea to bring a sweatshirt that you can easily pull off and on, depending on the temperature. Try your best on these tests as they are an important part of your school year! If I can do anything to help you, or if you have any questions, find me before and after school!! Good Luck!
