BEADLE ASSESSMENTS
Eighth grade Beadle students will participate in the Science NeSA on April 20th and 21st. NeSA stands for the Nebraska State
Accountability. Please help your student(s) perform their best by ensuring they are well-rested and eat a healthy breakfast the day of
the assessment. If possible, please avoid late night activities prior to an assessment. Beadle students have historically performed well
on assessments, and we look forward to continued success this year. Thank you for your support.
