  • We Did It!

    RES has been recognized by the

    WV Department of Education

    as a

    2014 High Progress Reward School!

    Keep up the good work

    Testing Schedule

    May 13-19 - 3rd Grade

    May 20-26 - 4th Grade

     May 27 - June 2 - 5th Grade

    How can you help?

     ü Encourage plenty of rest prior to and during testing.

     üMake sure students have a healthy breakfast or get to school at 8 AM so they can eat at school.

    üüSchedule student appointments before or after testing, not during testing week. Attendance that week is crucial for ALL students.

    üüEnsure all students are at school on time.  The fewer disruptions the better.  Testing starts promptly at 8:35 AM.

    üüExpress your love, pride and encouragement to all students.Testing can be stressful, but knowing you support their efforts can make a huge difference!

     Thanks for all your support!
