All students in grades 3-5 will be taking the Smarter Balance Assessment May 16-21. 5th grade will be taking the Science SBA on May 30. Students will need earbuds for testing. Please make sure your student arrives on time to school and schedule appointments (doctor, dentist, etc.) outside the school day. Students do best on a test if they are able to take it with their class on the regularly scheduled day. Classes who are testing will not be able to have volunteers in the room while they test. Please make sure that you check with your students teacher before you volunteer on test days. Be sure your child gets plenty of rest and eats a healthy breakfast. Having positive approach to the testing is key for students. Let them know you will be proud of them as they take the time to put forth their best effort on their tests.
