Dear Parents/Guardians,

Starting shortly after we return from Spring Break, Johnson Elementary students in grade 3-5 will be taking the online Michigan Student Test of Educational Progess (M-STEP). Statewide, students in grades 3-5 will take Math and ELA (English Language Arts) assessments. Fifth graders will also take Social Studies and Science assessments. Doing your best to have your child at school and on time during this test is important and greatly appreciated. Test sessions will begin on 9:30 am on each of these days. See below for the testing windows at Johnson, as well as a list of ways you can support your student during this time. Thank you!

Sincerely,

Mr. Gignac Principal,

Johnson Elementary
