NEW re-schedule date for Washington/Allegheny County testing: THURSDAY, Nov. 8th-- same location!!!
Susan Richman, 10/30/2012

We are so grateful that the wonderful Venice Presbyterian Church in McDonald PA in Washington County (see our 'TESTING SERVICE' link above for directions to the site) is able to host our re-scheduled FALL TESTING DAY next *Thursday*, November 8th. Same time, same location as always. We'll start testing promptly at 9:30am.... so aim to arrive by 9:15am (9:00am if you are planning to 'register at the door' -- just $35 per student), so that we can get start promptly. 

I hear that the local homeschool group meets at the church on *Wednesday*, and the (wonderful!) secretary mentioned that the group could probably help in setting up the needed tables in the social hall that afternoon. THANKS in advance for helping out in this way!

Look forward to seeing everyone at this testing site, and hope all of you are safe and dry-- even though the storm was not as terrible as it might have been out here in Western PA, I know this was the right decision to re-schedule. 

Please 'spread the word' to your homeschool groups about this NEW testing date! Thanks so much!

Hurricane Sandy-- POSTPONING our Fall Testing set for Tuesday October 30th in Washington County PA!!! More info...
Susan Richman, 10/29/2012

Due to the weather forecast of very strong winds and possibly heavy rain tomorrow morning, and the very real possibility of major power outages in the region, we've now made the decision to POSTPONE our scheduled Fall Testing Day set for Washington County (serving Allegheny County and all surrounding areas also). Testing was scheduled for the Venice Presbyterian Church in McDonald PA (Cecil Township). 

We have been in touch with church staff, and are working to set up a suitable NEW DATE for Fall Testing at this same (wonderful!) location. Hopefully by tomorrow or Wednesday (October 31st) we will have a new date set-- my hope is to be able to reschedule for either Wednesday November 7th or Thursday November 8th. We will post here, and email everyone already registered for testing at this site, as well as getting info out on various homeschool email lists just as soon as we have a definite reschedule date. 

THANKS for your understanding-- know that our biggest concern is safety and well-being, for you and your children. I also  think many children could feel very distracted by the unsettled weather and not be ready to focus on achievement testing. 

As always, families are VERY welcome to 'register at the door' for testing-- again, just check back here to find out about the new date. 

Praying for everyone's safety in the storm-- and especially for all homeschooling families right in the path of the hurricane.

You can still register online for our FALL TESTING SERVICE.... or just 'register at the door!
Susan Richman, 10/21/2012

Our 'early bird' registration for our TerraNova Achievement Testing is completed now, but you can still register online at the $35 per student rate. OR just 'register at the door' at the test site most convenient for you-- see our full schedule of testing sites at the link above. 

Looking forward to seeing you and your kids at one of our testing sites! 

Remember-- we can test any level from 3rd grade to 12th grade (NO 1st or 2nd grade testing). 

Here's all you need to bring on the testing day:  pencils (though we have some if you forget!). We'll supply everything else-- the testing booklet / answer sheet, scratch paper, simple ruler.

It is OPTIONAL to bring a CALCULATOR for your 5th grader or up student-- the test proctor will let your child know when it can be used. 

Looking forward to seeing you soon! 


Susan and Howard Richman
