3rd Grade: ENGLISH has been completed. April 24th through April 28th (MATH)
4th & 5th Grades: May 1st through May 5th (ENGLISH) and May 8th through May 12th (MATH). Thank you!
For the day-to-day routines, a few tips for parents. Students should...
■ Be at school every day. Please. Make up tests are difficult for everyone.
■ Be on time. Testing sessions are usually in the morning and often, shortly after school gets underway. Time to get settled into the classroom before testing begins each day, will help students relax.
■ Be rested and fed. Make sure that students have a good night's sleep and enough breakfast to sustain them. This is always important. Do not, however, think that your child should load up on a big breakfast for testing, when a lighter meal is their usual routine.
■ Be encouraged to do their best and relax. The best state of mind for learning and for testing is what researchers refer to as "relaxed alertness" - not stressed, not too casual – awake, but not alarmed or anxious.
