News from LCHS
LCHS 7-12 Testing: Next week, the week of April 12th, is an especially important week for us. As a school community, we will be taking a number of important tests, CMAS, PSAT, and SAT. Our initial data is promising and suggests, despite the many challenges, students are learning and progressing. Our 9th and 10th graders will take the PSAT which is a very important benchmark for their journey towards college and other post-secondary educational opportunities. This is an important test and we are excited to see them perform well. Scholarships, access to CMC classes and other opportunities can come from their performance on these tests. Eleventh graders will take the SAT. This is an important benchmark for them and we are excited to see how they do. Seventh/eighth graders will take CMAS, with 7th graders taking English and 8th graders taking math. These tests help us know where they are at as well as where our school is at compared to others. We are excited and looking forward to seeing where our students are so we can continue supporting them on their academic journeys.
A written letter with the students’ testing schedule for next week was sent home with students Wednesday and Thursday, that requires the parent to read and sign off on the letter, and the student to return it to school.
