Dear Cascade Families:
We are about to enter the season of assessments! This is an important time of year for your kids to show what they know and to inform the teacher of areas that need further focus before the end of the year.
During these testing windows, it is important for your children to get plenty of rest, eat a good breakfast, and attend school on every day of their tests. Please schedule appointments around this schedule.
Here is our assessment schedule:

PTO will provide snacks and water for your students during the MSP assessments. Grade K-2 classrooms will “sponsor” a class to provide posters, cheers, and other fun and encouraging sentiments for grade
