Rock the Test!














During the week of March 27th- March 31st, the state of Texas will administer the STAAR test.  Students in 5th grade will take the math test on Tuesday, March 28th and the reading test on Wednesday, March 27th.  Students in 4th grade will take the writing test on Tuesday.  

As students prepare for the upcoming test(s), please consider the following suggestions: 

* Please make certain that your child is well rested on the day of the test.

* Talk with your child at home about the importance of using the testing strategies taught at school.

* Be positive with your child.  Encourage him/her to have a positive attitude.

* Strive to make the day as normal as possible.  Avoid situations that might become emotional and cause stress for your child.

* Make certain that your child eats a healthy breakfast at home or school on the morning of testing.  

* STAAR tests are timed exams.  Plan so that your child arrives at school on time.  We want to make certain that each student has the full amount of time to complete the tests.

* Do not schedule medical, dental, or other appointments for your child on test days.

* Do not plan early pickups on testing days.  Again, we want every student to have his/her allowed time to complete testing.

* Your child will eat in his/her classroom on testing days.  Students must be closely monitored during lunch for security purposes and are not allowed to have outside contact.

Thank you for your help in ensuring your child’s success.

You all know our students will do an outstanding job!
