This gallery is a way to highlight the remarkable products of art education in the district. It’s a digital attempt at bringing the work of our student artists at all levels into your home – because art is created for others to take in.

ITP Test Dates

ITP Test Dates are coming up!

ERMS students will be participating in the annual ITP tests (standardized tests) in the beginning of November 2, 3, 7, and 9. All testing will be in the first 2 hours of the morning. Because we use this tool to provide the best programming decisions for our students and because it will measure student achievement from year to year, we ask that students be provided the following:

*A good night’s rest
*A healthy breakfast
*A healthy snack if the teacher allows
*A conversation with your student about good test taking skills

Iowa Testing Programs provides sound, accurate and actionable information for a variety of purposes and audiences including:

  • Measuring student achievement
  • Monitoring student growth
  • Making relative comparisons
  • Informing decisions about students
  • Meeting state and federal requirements
