  • 7th grade students will take the Math and ELA SBA .
  • 8th grade students will take the Math and ELA SBA and the Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science (WCAS).  

PCMS will be on an adjusted schedule from Monday, May 2 to Friday, May 20. Students will go to three periods and Lynx Life each day.  Classes will be longer to accommodate the testing window.
