Achievement Testing – Change of Dates
Since many districts have used more calamity days than normal this year, the State Board of Education approved a resolution to add an additional week to the OAA testing window. Students in grades 3, 4, 5 & 6 will be taking the Ohio Achievement Tests this spring. The revised schedule is as follows:
Grade 3 April 30 and May 7
Grade 4 April 29 and May 1
Grade 5 April 29, May 1 and 6
Grade 6 May 6 and 8
Testing will take place each morning. If possible, please do not schedule appointments during the testing times.

Music in Our Schools Month
The Fort Jennings 4th grade students will be seen performing the “Star Spangled Banner” on the video concert for Music in our Schools Month. The 4th grade students filmed their performance at the historic Memorial Hall located in Ft. Jennings. Beginning March 1, this video may be observed online at https://musiced.nafme.org/concert
