PARCC testing began this week for our 4th and 5th graders and will continue next week. Our 3rd graders will begin their PARCC testing on April 17. During this testing time, we ask you to help your child do their best by doing a few things:
- Please make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep and comes to school well-rested for the assessments.
- A healthy breakfast would also benefit your child and has been proven to help students achieve higher academic success.
- Please be sure and let us know if your student will either be absent or leaving earlier than the regular dismissal times. We will not start their assessment. It will need to be made up at another time, taking away from other instructional times.
- If your child is sick, please do not send him/her to school! We have built-in make up days for those students who miss a test due to illness. Sniffling, sneezing, coughing, etc. all serve as distractions for those taking the assessments
Thank you for helping us make PARCC testing a positive experience for your students. We look forward to celebrating the growth they have achieved!
