Build Confidence in April

Thursday, March 1, 2018 - 08:52

Hello Homebase Students and Families! 

Our Homebase focus during the month of April is “Confidence!”  Many of our Homebase class discussions and activities will focus on how important it is to have confidence in ourselves, our abilities and our work!   As students return from Spring Break, spring academic testing will soon begin.  Students will participate in state-wide MCA tests (Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments) in the areas of Reading and Math beginning the week of April 16th.  Please note that 8th grade students will also complete testing in the area of Science.  Our spring testing schedule can be found on the Lake webpage and listed below.   

We want students to reflect upon their learning this school year and show confidence and effort in demonstrating their academic achievements, not only during assessments, but in all that they do and say each day!  As a staff, we are confident that students will do their best to finish out the remainder of the school year!  

We hope you and your family enjoyed the recent break and hopefully spring will arrive soon!    If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at any time!
