Kerrydale's SOL & EOY Testing
The Virginia Standards of Learning Tests (SOLs) Testing are underway. Our students and teachers have been working very hard to prepare for the testing. Testing and make up testing will be held Thursday, May 14th through Wednesday, June 17th. 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 check out the Counselor's Corner, under Departments to the left), 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!!

Help the Earth & Kerrydale!

Kerrydale collects and receives money for every ink or toner printer cartridge or old cell phone we recycle. The cartridges are recycled and if the phones can still be used, they go to a women's violence charity to help women who need them or they get recycled as well. Please help Kerrydale work towards a cleaner earth while earning money to help our technology program. Cartridges and phones can be sent in with your child anytime or brought up to the computer lab and dropped off in the big box in the mailroom or in the front of the lab. In the past, we have used the money to purchase student software, digital cameras, headphones and other equipment.  Thank you in advance for your support!
