EOG Science & SS Tests
Students will take the End-Of-Grade Science & Social Studies tests on 5/15 and 5/16 respectively.
Students received their SS study guide on Friday, and the science study guide is located at the back of their science textbook (pages 358-367).
Students will be allowed to use their science textbook during the test. After the final test, all textbooks will be collected.
**Please note: Magnets is no longer covered in 3rd grade, so those questions will not be included in the final.
For students participating in the in-class STEM home building project, their final project grade may serve as their assessment grade.
All Science and Social Studies textbooks that were issued at the beginning of the school year should be returned no later than Wednesday, May 16th.
This year’s Awards Day program will take place on Tuesday, May 22nd at 1:00pm in your child’s homeroom. Students may dress up or wear their regular TMSA uniform. As is customary, parents are welcome to join us as we recognize and celebrate our 3rd grade scholars’ accomplishments.
