Yesterday I was invited to attend your Veteran's Day assembly by my grandson Austin Willson. I knew he was giving a speech for his leadership class and I wanted to be there to support him. I was so moved by this assembly I had tears in my eyes. I get a little more emotional as I get older but this presentation for veteran's day was awesome. Not only were the presenters, the choir and the singer great, the whole student body and the teacher's impressed me as well. Great job Thunder Mountain. I am looking forward to the next assembly I am invited to.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
