OAKS Review

Round 1: 8th grade science OAKS test occurred February 9th-13th. The following list covers many of the standards taught in our districts scope and sequence and others that aren't but will still show up on the state test. Remember, all brains can grow and improve with proper training, hard work and dedication. Studying is a key part of brain growth. So, lets go to work and train that brain!!!

Round 2: June 3rd-5th
