TN Ready Info

March 29, 2019



Alcoa Middle School Parents,

Along with warmer days and Spring flowers it is “Testing Season” in the State of Tennessee.  The Alcoa Middle administration and teachers keep testing in perspective. We do not make it a practice to do test review all year long.  Instead, we cover the state standards in engaging ways.


However, we also use review materials to prepare students for the test in the format that it will be given.  We want students to be prepared not only to know how to find the answers but also how to take the test. So, during the next few weeks as we push toward testing we need all our students to be here as healthy and focused as possible.  


The Tennessee Department of Education has designed information to help your family prepare for TNReady.  All of this information can be found at:     


For your planning purposes below are the testing dates.  Please be mindful of these when scheduling routine appointments, such as the orthodontist.  We need all healthy students on time and present! Thank you for all you do as caregivers to our students.  As hard as we work with them 8 hours a day, you are the most influential educator in their life. Thank you for instilling in them that education matters and ensuring they get here healthy and with a positive attitude!
