Milestones Testing

We are only going to give one section each day, so the students are not testing as long! ( Only about 1 hour a day will be devoted to actual testing!!!) We do not believe in testing stress at RMS---OUR STUDENTS ROCK! Most of our day will be business as usual! Milestones gives us great data, but remember it does not tell us the most important things about our students! We already know those things!!! Please feed them a good breakfast and trust us to do the rest! We have such an awesome group of students, teachers and parents at RMS!!! Everything is going to be great! Please do not treat testing days any different for your child! We want them to be confident, happy and ready to go!!
