ISTEP Testing Information

The Online Multiple Choice portion of the ISTEP will be given next week, April 28-May 2. It is very important that your student attends school these days. It is also important that your student eats breakfast, gets plenty of rest, experiences minimal distractions and maintains low stress levels as it is very important that they score their best on the tests. If you know your son or daughter might be absent during these days, please call the Office as soon as possible.

To help your students prepare, you can visit the DOE website. The link below will give sample questions and help your child with online test taking skills.


Again, we thank you for your support. If you have any questions, fill free to give me a call at 963-2560.

Earth Day Selfie

Mrs. Hainlen's students celebrated Earth Day by taking a "group selfie" for NASA's Earth Day #GlobalSelfie event.
Check it out for more information... it's actually really neat. They are trying to build a mosaic image of earth using people's selfies that they "hashtag" on a social media site. That isn't all they are doing....

Change in School Schedule

Tri-Central will be adding 30 minutes onto the following days, April 1-3 and April 14-24. The student day will start at normal time 8:00am and will end at 3:30pm. This change is for grades k-12. Thank you.
