Principal's Newsletter -- TCAP and Dash & Bash

Good Evening Nolan Families,

We wanted to share a couple of reminders regarding TCAP TN Ready testing that will begin this week, and the MEF Dash and Bash that will be taking place at the end of this week.  

As shared during the letter that previously went home, all students in grades 3-5 will begin TCAP TN Ready testing tomorrow on Monday, April 16. Testing will then take place on Tuesday, April 17 and Wednesday, April 18 of this week and on Monday, April 23 through Friday, April 27 the following week .  

Our students will take one or more subtests each morning from approximately 9:00 to 11:00 with most tests lasting approximately 45 minutes.

In supporting your students, please be sure that they get a good night's rest, have a good, nutritious breakfast each morning, and arrive on time each morning as well.  If you haven't already, please also be sure to remind your students of how prepared they are for their tests and to do their very best to show all of the wonderful learning that has taken place.  

In closing, we also want to remind everyone that the MEF Dash and Bash will take place on Friday, April 20 with the race starting at 6:00 and the Bash taking place from 6:00 to 8:30.  All activities will take place at SMMHS and information regarding registration, parent and staff volunteer sign-ups, and ticket and wristband purchases can be found at or by clicking the link from our school website.  

In support of MEF and the Dash and Bash, we are asking our students to wear this year's or previous years' Dash and Bash t-shirts on Friday, April 20 as well.  

As always, thank you for your support as we look forward to a great week of testing and lots of fun at the end of the week to raise money and fund invaluable teaching positions and resources at our Signal Mountain schools!  

Shane D. Harwood, Ed. D.
