It is time for state testing. Fourth and fifth grades will begin testing tomorrow, April 2nd. Fifth grade will test every day beginning tomorrow through Thursday, April 11th. Teachers will send out more specific test information via their newsletters.
Fourth grade will test beginning tomorrow through April 18th. Different teachers will test on different days, and more specific information will be sent via their newsletters.
Sixth grade will begin testing on April 15th and test daily through April 25th. Again, specific schedules will be sent out via teacher newsletters.
Students testing in small groups or with special education teachers will test at various times throughout the month of April. Make up testing will be throughout the month of April as well.
If you are unsure of your child's testing schedule please just assume they are testing and send them to school prepared. Please do not schedule appointments during the day within the testing window. We cannot take a child from the testing room once they've started testing. Doing so will invalidate tests. If you must schedule an appointment, please check your child's testing times first by contacting their homeroom teacher. Students should also have lots of sleep the night before testing, a good breakfast the morning of testing, and as little evening stress as possible during the testing periods. It is so important that we give them every opportunity for success.
If you have any further questions, please reach out to your child's homeroom teacher or contact our office. Thank you!
