    We MUST prepare for the Georgia Milestone Testing.

    As the 2020-2021 school year comes to an end, we must not forget it isn't over yet! Students are preparing to  take the end of the year/course Georgia Milestones Assessment. Please make sure students are reading at least 20 minutes a day as well as completing lessons in IReady and Reading Plus. This practice gets students closer to the goal of content mastery. Let's show what Jaguars can do!!
