Dear CFA Students and Parents,


Students will be given the SOL testing information in class on Friday, May 7.  I will be sending the same information as an attachment in next Friday’s Newsletter so that you will have this information to review at home.  The Intro Letter gives general information, and the May SOL testing 2009 comparative schedule has all school testing schedules. When you look at the schedules, please don’t panic!  It takes a minute to figure out a schedule and strategy.

 When I send the attachment next week, you will need to find your school and print the page.  I encourage students not to lose their printouts of these schedules!  I also encourage all parents to call me or the HHS Testing Coordinator, Robin Lewis, if you do not understand the schedule after students have explained it to you (and if your student can’t explain it to you, they need to see me or their CFA teachers for additional explanations!!)

 So students, please try NOT to miss your CFA class next Friday or you will miss the opportunity to go over the SOL testing schedule with me. 


 All current and incoming CFA students and parents will receive a letter from Judy Williams, the Education Specialist for Gifted Education Programs, in the near future.  All CFA students have been identified as gifted and this identification will be part of their academic record.  Congratulations CFA students!!
