A letter came home in your child’s folder before Winter Break regarding Milestones testing for 4th grade.  All testing will be done on the computer this year.  Mrs. Alter has been teaching keyboarding skills in computer lab to help students prepare for the Milestones.  I would highly encourage students to also practice keyboarding at home.   Mrs. Alter has links and resources on her blog on the East Side Website that you can utilize at home.  Please click on the link below to access her website.
