2nd Grade Testing

2nd grade students will be participating in CogAt testing: October 24, 25, and 26 and IOWA testing: October 29, 30.  It is important as a school we help provide the best test environment.  Please be mindful to be silent when traveling in the hall and to stay away from the second grade rooms.

Make sure you get plenty of rest at night.
Make sure you eat a nourishing breakfast.
Make every effort to be in school and on time. 
Please bring two #2 pencils for marking test documents.

My Energy Kit Challenge

Our school is taking the My Energy Kit Challenge and has a goal to save at least 20,000 kilowatt-hours of energy. That’s like taking 40 cars off the road for a whole year! We’ll reach this goal when at least 100 families sign up for a FREE Energy Kit from Duke Energy and use it to make their homes energy efficient. These FREE kits contain items like LED bulbs, faucet aerators and other useful gadgets that can make a big difference toward saving energy at home. When we meet the challenge, our school will automatically win $250. Let’s get a head-start! You can take the My Energy Kit Challenge and sign up for your FREE kit now at or call 1-855-386-9548.  (Even if you signed up last year, it will still count towards our challenge when you sign up again.)
