Our first Provincial Achievement Test will be written this month. On May 15, all Alberta grade 3 students will write their Language Arts, Part A (Writing) Test
Information on Provincial Achievement Tests, including a Grade 3 Parent Guide can be found at;
If you are having trouble accessing the site, please let me know and I will send a parent copy home for you.
Reading and Math will be tested in June. Again, there is not much that students need to do outside of school to prepare for these tests. A good night’s sleep, and a healthy breakfast are the best preparation!

Mrs. Young has returned to IREC from her maternity leave and she will be teaching our class Social Studies. This will allow Mrs. Litzenberger to work with a small group of students who will be practicing their basic addition and subtraction facts to 18. A “Win Win” for all of us. Welcome back Mrs. Young!
