We begin the STAAR testing season this week:
- April 2—7th Writing (Part 1), 8th Math
- April 3—7th Writing (Part 2), 8th Reading
- April 4—7th Advanced Math (taking the 8th grade Math exam)
- April 5—Make-ups
We encourage all students to get to bed early the night before each exam and to eat a healthy breakfast the day of the exam. Please provide lots of moral support to your children. We know that some kids get nervous before tests like theses. Our message to them should be: your teachers have prepared you to be successful on the tests. Do your best and take your time (each test provides four hours for completion). All of our students should do well!
7th and 8th graders are welcome to come to the track on Tuesday and Wednesday, 7:45 – 8:00 a.m., for an early morning energy boost. Students can walk or jog around the track and the school will provide a small snack to give their brains a wake-up call and fuel their body for the STAAR tests.Read more →
