Dear Parents,


    Mark your calendars! Testing time is upon us once again! The following contains the dates for AzMERIT and AIMS Science testing per grade level. We will be testing in the computer lab as we did last school year immediately upon returning from spring break. Please help your child be prepared each day with a good breakfast and restful night’s sleep. Also, please keep in mind that if an appointment must be made during the school day it should be on a day other than the date your child is scheduled to test. Once students leave, they will not be able to complete or make-up any tests they leave incomplete. Please feel free to contact Mrs. Ram at kathyram@cardenoftucson.org or at 520.293.6661 if you have any questions.
