ISTEP continues this week for 4th grade through Wednesday. I cannot stress enough, the importance of attendance on testing days. Unless your child is too ill to attend, please make sure he/she is at school on time each day of testing.
We ask parents to be careful not to stress students out by putting too much emphasis on ISTEPs. However, here are some simple stress-free ideas you can do to help make sure your child is prepared to have a great attitude on testing days:
- Make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep.
- Make sure your child eats a proper breakfast.
- Make sure your child has taken any needed medication.
- Get your child to school on time.
- Remind your child to do his/her best and that the test is important, but that it is ok if they do not know how to answer some questions. By doing their best, it helps their teachers know how to plan their instruction.
- If your child is too ill to attend school on testing days, please call the school by 7:30am.
This Wednesday, April 26th is Administrative Professionals Day. I would like to thank Karen and Lee for all they do in the front office to keep our school running safely and smoothly and for always doing so with kindness. We appreciate all you do!
