The Keystones are Coming!

It’s that time of the year again! Our Algebra 1 students and teachers have been working hard all year to prepare for the Keystone Exam, and it is quickly approaching. The dates for this winter’s Keystone Exams are as follows:

Biology – January 7th and 8th (Thursday and Friday)

Algebra 1 – January 11th and 12th (Monday and Tuesday)

Literature – January 13th and 14th (Wednesday and Thursday)

That’s right – this means that students will return from Christmas vacation to begin Keystones on Thursday of that week. We’re excited to see all of our students succeed! What can you be doing to get ready?
