Preparing For Tests / Grade Readiness Month
A Grade Ahead just completed the Preparing for Tests/Grade Readiness Month in Central Ohio in February as our students begin preparing for standardized tests in their schools. This month contained content that will help students study for their upcoming testing. Standardized Testing will occur between March 25th and April 26th for English language arts, and April 1st to May 10th for math, science, and social studies. Parents of our Ohio Academies can check with their schools or visit the Ohio Department of Education website to find specific dates.
Our first ever A Grade Ahead Robotics Camp: Race to the End has just been completed. The camp allowed students to learn the fundamentals of building and programming using Lego robotics. At the completion of the camp, students took the skills they have learned to build and race their robots through an obstacles course. There will be more information about the availability of the camp coming soon.
