SOL Review with Drones

Drones were flown to review for upcoming SOL tests.

Thank you, WJCC Schools Foundation for your generous grant. With this grant, DJM Fourth and Fifth graders were able to use drones to review VA Studies and Science content for upcoming SOL tests. Students partnered up and tried their hand at Tic-Tac-Toe after answering review questions. Students who answered questions correctly flew the drones to mark their spot! The excitement in the halls of DJ Montague was tangible.

Second and Third grade students had the pleasure of learning from Author Angela Dominguez this week. She shared her passion for reading and drawing. Ms. Dominguez encouraged children to read, read, read, and to practice their craft. She engaged students as they helped  her create new characters and story starters. It was a real treat!

SOL Schedule and Information

Dear Families,

As part of the Virginia State Assessment Program, 3rd-5th grade students in Williamsburg-James City County Public Schools will take the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests in May. We want to make you aware of the testing dates early in the second semester so that you can plan for your child to be at school for each test.

The SOL tests will take place during a four-week window, from May 13 – June 7, 2019.  Make-up testing will take place during the testing window.  Students will take all SOL tests online unless otherwise noted in an Individualized Education Program (IEP), 504 Plan, or English Language Learner Plan. Below is the specific schedule for SOL testing at D.J. Montague Elementary School:

If you know in advance that your child will not attend school for one or more of the SOL test(s), please notify me in writing as soon as possible so that I can arrange for your child to make up the test(s) in a timely manner.

Students who receive a score between 375-399 (400 is passing) on any SOL test will be given the opportunity to retake their test.  You will be notified after your student completes their initial SOL test, if this applies to your child.  These retakes will only be given with your prior permission, and each student may only retake their SOL test one time per subject area.

Thank you for your support in preparing your child for the May SOL tests by encouraging them to get plenty of rest and eat a healthy breakfast.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me at 258-3022 with any questions or concerns.
