Kerrydale's SOL & EOY Testing
The Virginia Standards of Learning Tests (SOLs) Testing will be starting soon. Our students and teachers have been working very hard to prepare for the testing. SOL Testing and make up testing will be held starting Tuesday, May 8th through Wednesday, June 15th. Please click on the school calendar link above to view all of the testing days. 
Please help your child be successful by helping them review their notes, practice by using Study Island and other computer links (see SOL Resources and links under Technology), helping them get a good night’s sleep, by eating a healthy breakfast, and by making sure they arrive to school on time on their testing dates. Third, fourth and fifth graders may eat breakfast (free) at school on their scheduled SOL testing days. Important: Please do not send any cell phones or electronic devices to school with your child on SOL testing days due to security reasons. Please try to schedule doctor's appointments on non-testing days.  Please remind your child that they are prepared for the tests, not to be nervous, take your time, and that the teachers believe in you.  LET’S SHOW OUR KERRYDALE PRIDE AND EXCELLENCE!!

Ink Cartridge Recycling Update

Effective January 2016, Kerrydale will no longer be collecting ink or laser printing cartridges and cell phones for recycling to support our technology program.  This change is due to changes in the computer printing industry.  It is not profitable for Kerrydale to collect and recycle the cartridges or phones any more.  THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OVER THE YEARS.   Please still recycle your cartridges and phones at area stores or other recycling locations.  Best Buy, Staples, Office Depot all recycle cartridges and electronics or check the PWCS recycling site to find out more places to recycle in your community.  Always REUSE, REDUCE and RECYCLE.
