Mrs. Olson, our wonderful librarian taught a "Book Tasting" lesson to Mrs. Anderson's Novel's and Literature class last week. Students were to find 3 books from 5 different genres that sounded interesting to them. Once students learned a bit more about the books they chose they were able to taste some cookies and soda. It was a great way to learn more about some new books!

SAGE Testing Begins Monday April 16th

Fri, 04/13/2018 - 3:14pm

As we begin our end of year testing the counseling office has put together a list of tips to help our students and test time go smoothly:

  • Get a Good Night's Sleep-This gives your brain time to recharge and remember what you've learned.
  • Eat a good, light breakfast-This will help with energy and concentration, also drink lots of WATER!
  • Stay Calm-When you sit down to do your exam, remember to relax and slow your breathing.
  • Don't Rush-Work through the exam at a comfortable pace and read each question more than once if needed.
  • Trust Yourself-Be postive and believe in yourself, you can do this!
