Hello Anthem Families,

We will begin our state testing with AIMS Science for 4th and 8th grade and AzMERIT for 3rd – 8th grade.  Please make sure your student(s) are well rested, on time to school and eat a healthy breakfast.

This year Anthem K-8 will be computer based testing.  The purpose of this assessment is to determine your son/daughter’s level of achievement in the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics.

The data collected from your child’s participation in these assessments is used to meet his/her specific learning needs.  In order to collect the most accurate data on your child, attendance during this time of testing is critical.
