Principal NoteLobos Family, 

Students will take the Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) next Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. This state assessment measures student growth and student achievement in core content areas. Know that our teachers have prepared your students for this moment! What matters most is that all students put forward their best effort!  Support this initiative by ensuring your student gets a good night’s sleep and asking about their testing experience. Thank you in advance for doing your part to ensure STRIVE Prep – Federal is the #1 middle school in Denver!

Somos Lobos,
Adam Lenzmeier
CMAS TestingCMAS Testing is on April 12, 13, and 14. Here is important information:

– Students will test in English Language Arts in the morning and Math in the afternoon
– All students must arrive on time during CMAS testing. If students arrive too late, they cannot join their testing room and will need to do hours of makeup testing the next week
– Right now, 77% of our students have parent or guardian permission to be dismissed at 2:00 p.m. on April 12, 13, and 14. Call us with any questions about early dismissal or to add your student to the approved list
– Students cannot have any cell phones, AirPods, Apple Watches, or any other electronic devices with them in the testing room. Please speak to your student about the importance of turning in their devices for testing. This is a State of Colorado testing rule
