Your child will take their NC Check-in assessments this week. NC Check-in Reading will take place on Tuesday and NC Check-in Math will take place on Wednesday. Please make every effort to have your child at school and on time Tuesday and Wednesday morning.  iPads should also be charged the morning of the assessment. We will begin the assessment at 8:00 AM each day. The data from the NC Check-ins help us to determine how well your child is learning the material taught at this point of the school year. Please encourage your child to do their best.  We look forward to seeing our improvements so far this year.
