2014 EVERYDAY HERO AWARDS
Wednesday, March 5, 2014
Third, fourth, fifth and sixth grade students at Millbury Street Elementary School will begin the MCAS testing process on Tuesday, March 18th. The teachers and I have assured the students that they are well prepared to take the tests and ready to do their best. The MCAS tests not only provide for the school and parent a measurement of how well a child is attaining grade level standards but also provide information to the school around instructional practices and curriculum development and alignment. Results from the Spring 2014 MCAS will be reported to parents in September 2014.
We have made provisions to ensure that the children are tested under the best of conditions. Toward this end, it is important that parents send their children to school well rested and ready for testing each day. Be sure that your child has a good breakfast. Though we do realize that occasionally there are circumstances that warrant a child arriving to school late, it is imperative that all students be at school on time as testing begins shortly after the beginning of the school day. If students miss a testing session because of a serious illness or a religious observance, we will conduct make-up sessions within the time frame allowed by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. The Millbury Street Elementary School testing schedule has been provided for your information. If you have any further questions please contact the school.

We have two weeks of MCAS testing along with assemblies, an All School Meeting, a clothing drive sponsored by Student Council, Grafton Night at the Sharks game and the very popular staff basketball game!
