April 29, 2011

As you can tell, the 6th Graders of Laurelville have been working very hard to prepare for these tests. Well all that hard work and dedication paid off, because most the people I talked to said it was pretty easy. I’m so happy to say that we are done with testing. This past month seemed […]
