Math Bee Winners

April 2015

Dear Parents:

As the ELA and Math State Assessment approaches for Grades 3-8, we thought it would be beneficial to share the following suggestions that will help your children prepare in a positive way.  Please review these TEST WISE TIPS with your child.  While we want our children to do well, we also want them to approach the testing with a positive attitude

  • Plan to avoid trips, appointments or other scheduling conflicts with the assessment
  • Do not make any unusual changes in the sleeping or eating habits of your child
  • Try to avoid introducing any family conflicts
  • Discourage any studying the night before
  • Avoid watching programs that are frightening
  • Please provide a nourishing breakfast
  • Dress your child comfortably.  New clothes are often distracting for children
  • Please bring your child to school on time
  • Tell your child “Good Luck” with a smile
  • Ask about the assessment at the end of the day.  Show your child your interest in the results, but do not overdo it.

Following this simple advice could mean the difference between a child who is emotionally ready for the assessment and one who is not.

Please note that the test dates for the

ELA State Assessment are:

 April 14 – April 16

Math State Assessment dates are:

 April 22 – April 24

To foster school safety please speak with your children about following all rules and all bus safety procedures. Children must remain seated on the bus with their seatbelts fastened.

And please remember to join us for P.A.C.T. Time the second and fourth Wednesday of the month.
