AzMERIT Testing Reminders
-Encourage your child to do their best and to take pride in their work. Help them to arrive mentally prepared to take the test.
-Because the AzMERIT test is not timed, please discuss the benefit of reading questions carefully and double check their answers.
-Adequate rest is crucial, so make sure your child gets plenty of sleep.
-A healthy breakfast is important. Include plenty of protein and not too many carbohydrates. Students should also be well hydrated prior to testing.
Please have your child here on time and avoid scheduling appointments or vacations during AzMERIT testing. We appreciate your support and commitment as parents in helping your child perform well! Testing~April 2nd – April 27th.

PTO hosts "Ream the Teacher" as an opportunity for you to support your child's teacher by bringing in copy paper for them. "Helen's Hope Chest Donation Drive" is sponsored by the Student Council to collect gently used clothing, school supplies, books, toys, and more for foster children. The "Jump Rope for Heart Fundraiser" allows the students to raise money for the American Heart Association. Bush Bobcats and their families are generous!
