Tis the season to start thinking about referring students for ALPHA. Because of changes in the state regulations, there will be no automatic considerations to be tested for students in grades kindergarten, first and second. They will have to be referred to be tested for the ALPHA program. Anyone may refer a student to be tested for ALPHA. Fourth and Fifth grade students can be referred and automatically considered to be tested. To start the referral process you will need to pick up a referral packet in the office and turn it in to Mrs. Olivia Parrott, counselor. The packets need to be turned in by January 20 by 3 p.m.
