Standardized Yearly Testing
Its hard to believe its almost that time of year again.  By now you should have received your order forms in the mail.  Please pay close attention to the deadlines listed on the forms.   

We usually group test some time in March or the first part of April.  I will not have a test date until February.   For the last several years Westmoreland Baptist Church has let us use their church and hopefully we will be able to use it again.   

In order to keep our testing service a free service we need parent volunteers.  If you would like to volunteer to be a tester or help with testing please contact me.   To become a tester you must take a training class administered by Mary Ellen Sullivan, the cost is $18.   If you would like to take the class please send me your name and contact info.     If you have any questions feel free to contact melinda  @ tshomeschoolnews@hotmail.com or 304-972-6780.   If you call and don't get an answer please leave a message I will call you back.
