Spring break arrives

Students and staff alike are looking forward to spring break after the first week of New Mexico Standards-Based Assessment testing. School officials wish students and their families a most pleasant week to prepare for the final rush of end-of-school studies.

NMSBA continues

The week after spring break, students finish the final writing and science parts of the New Mexico Standards Based Assessment. Assistant Principal Glenda Meeks reminds parents that rest is important for any learning activity and especially for testing. She asks for parents to schedule doctor’s appointments in the afternoon during testing times if at all possible.
