February Principal’s Passage
State assessments will begin at EES in March. 3rd and 4th

year is a Multi-Disciplinary Performance task and a Math Performance task. In
each of those new assessments, students will be given stimuli in which they
will study and then have to provide a written response. 4th grade will also
take a science assessment. Students will

assessments are being field tested only. As we prepare for the assessments, please encourage
your children to get plenty of sleep, eat well, and to give their best
