The first week of Georgia Milestones testing in
grades 3 and 5 was very successful. 5th grade will still be
testing on Monday and Tuesday in addition to make-ups. We will maintain a quiet testing environment
from 8:00 a.m. – approximately 11:00 a.m. each day and will not be accepting
any volunteers during that time. Thank you for ensuring your child is at school
on time, well rested and prepared to do his/her best. Please be advised that your
child's specials times might be modified based on the testing day. 4th
graders will be testing on May 6 - May 10. If you have any questions,
please contact our testing coordinator, Erin Nusnbaum.

Applicants should be prepared to spend about 10-15 minutes for the training and application process. In accordance with State Law, all volunteers must be current with the Child Abuse Reporting Protocol Training before being allowed to volunteer in our schools. It is very important that volunteers enter their full legal name as it appears on their government issued ID (please do not use nicknames or "goes by" names on the application).
