7th Grade Testing
The 7th grade students will be taking the ITBS battery of tests on April 21, 22 and 23 AND April 28, 29, and 30, AND May 1, 2014. During this time, there will be practice tests and actual testing. This is a critical time for students. Please assist their success by NOT scheduling appointments during testing time, unless it is AFTER lunch, particularly on actual testing days, April 22-23 and April 29-30 and May 1. Making up these tests is extremely difficult and requires the students to miss valuable instructional time.
Tests will be given in the mornings. Your child must get to school on time (8:20 a.m.) A student arriving late after a test has started, will have to wait until the test ends before entering the classroom.
Also, please see that your child (children) get plenty of rest and eat a healthy breakfast on the testing days. This too will encourage better performance. We will not schedule homework or other tests on the actual testing days.
Finally your child may bring a healthy snack (NO DRINKS) on the five testing days listed above.
