Common Core State Standards for grades 3rd-8th will be taken on a desktop computer with a mouse for better manipulation, enabling students to provide complete answers to questions.  We are doing our part at school to provide practice using a mouse in our computer lab.  However, this is not an easy task because of the many small devices that children use daily that do not require a mouse.  It will help your child a great deal to practice navigating and manipulating with a mouse if the opportunity presents itself at home.  Assessments will be administered in the spring and the date will be provided as soon as confirmed.  This year the Smarter Balance Testing will have results.  Please speak with Mrs. Heize to answer any questions you may have.  Also, please see below links you can use with your child for practice skills. Thank you.
