State Mandated Testing

Parent CREW,

I wanted to reach out to you all as we have begun to prepare for state testing this spring.  Our 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grade students will be taking the Colorado Measure of Academic Success (CMAS) along with all of the other students in Colorado.  It will measure the Colorado Academic Standards as taught in all classrooms.  This is a wonderful time for students to really demonstrate some of the amazing learning they have gained this year here at Pine Lane.

  • 5th Grade only-  Science

As always, please try and avoid scheduling appointments or planning trips during these times.  If you do have something that cannot be changed, please contact Jill Casas at Additionally, we HIGHLY encourage participation, but we respect our parents’ decision regarding whether their children participate in this assessment process. If you choose to excuse your child, you will be able to send him/her to school those days. Please see our website under the State Mandated Assessment Tab for additional resources regarding this process. Thank you for your continued partnership!
