Tracks 2, 3, & 4
June 17: ELA
June 18: Math
Tracks 2, 3, & 4
Grades 4 & 5

If you are able to volunteer your time, please Sign Up to let us know the day(s) you are available. If you have any questions, please contact Erika Emelle at 919-544-2474 x20161 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you so much!
Hallway monitors will need to arrive to school by 9:10 am on testing days and should be registered as volunteers. Testing should be completed by 1 pm on ELA testing days and 12 pm on math and science testing days.
As a hallway monitor, you can read a book, draw, knit, or work on a computer/electronic device. We simply ask that you make sure hallways are quiet to ensure that we have the best testing environment for our students. Volunteers will also be provided walkie-talkies to contact the testing coordinator or office if needed.
