Upcoming Events

Dear Zilker Families:

I hope you all have had a nice weekend and are ready for a full week back at school.  We have a lot going on right now, so I wanted to share a few important dates for you to keep in mind.

Benchmark Testing:

Our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade classes will be taking district benchmark tests this month. Benchmark tests are provided by the district and allow us an opportunity to see how our students are progressing academically.
District benchmark tests also provide our teachers with data that are used to guide instruction and specifically, to assist in determining which students are in need of additional interventions. Parents will receive benchmark data prior to the end of the semester. The benchmark testing dates are as follows:

January 10

5th Reading

January 11

5th Math

January 16

5th Science

January 23

3rd and 4th Reading

January 24

3rd and 4th Math
