iReady Testing (Diagnostic #2)

All HMS students in grades 6-8 will continue iReady diagnostic testing this week. This test will help teachers determine what areas our students need help with in reading and math. Our diagnostic #2 testing window is January 11th-21st. Students will take the assessment during their Language Arts and Math classes. Parents, we need our students to give their best effort on this assessment. We will facilitate goal setting in our math classes this week. I believe our students can achieve their goal. Our testing schedule is below.
