# Review for Georgia Milestone Assessment

We are only two weeks away from Spring Break which means we are only four weeks away from the Georgia Milestone Assessment! The test will begin the week of April 16th for 7th grade. It is imperative that the next few weeks are used to focus on review and mastery of the standards leading up to the test. To ensure we review ALL material students will be required to complete at-home review on top of the review we will be doing in the classroom.

Students are going to be required to complete the 7th grade IXL standards before the Milestone Assessment. Any standards not completed at school will be required to be finished either at home or during morning tutoring. I will be at school every morning at 8am for students who would like to work on the assignments. Below is the schedule and due dates for IXL:

IXL Standard and Due Dates
B.1 – B.6:     3/23/2018
C.1 – C.9:     3/26/2018
H.1 – H.9:    3/28/2018
J.1 – J.12:     3/30/2018
L.1 – L.10:    4/2/2018
M.1 – M.6:   4/8/2018
R.1 – R.16:  4/11/2018
S.6 – S.8:     4/15/2018
