Attention CPSD Parents,

Testing is underway in the Canton Public School District. Tomorrow, April 20th Third Graders will take the "Third Grade Gate" test. This test will determine whether or not they are promoted to the 4th grade. In 2013, the Mississippi Legislature passed the Literacy-Based Promotion Act to ensure students exit third grade reading at or above grade level. Students who do not pass the MAP 3rd grade ELA Assessment will have an additional opportunity to re-test. However, we want them to pass the first time around. Parents we need your help. Please encourage your child to think positively and to do his or her best to pass the test tomorrow. Please make sure your child gets plenty of sleep, eats a good breakfast, and arrives on time for school. Together let's encourage our students to "Rock the Test!" They can do it!!
