Testing Begins!

All students in fifth grade will take the MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) test next week- Monday, Tuesday, and Friday. These tests are given in reading, language arts, math. and science.
Please speak with your child about the test experience. It is important that students approach the test with confidence. Parents can help in the following ways:
  • Make sure that your child is well rested and ready to do his/her best work. Try not to schedule many activities after school.
  • Please ensure that your child eats a wholesome, nutritious breakfast each day.
  • See that your child arrives at school on time and relaxed.
  • Comfort counts. Have your child dress in comfortable clothes. 
  • Encourage your child to do the best work possible and to have a positive attitude. 
      Before testing, students were asked to reflect on their personal study habits, effort, and participation. Students set goals. They reviewed skills and now it's time to test. 
      Students are excited to celebrate growth!
           Thanks, parents, for ALL you do to encourage your child!
