STAAR Test Reminders:

Math STAAR Monday, May 14
Reading STAAR Tuesday, May 15

  • Be sure to get plenty of sleep the night before and eat a good, healthy breakfast the morning of the test.  Your brain will be working hard all day and you need lots of energy to stay strong!
  • No backpacks on Monday or Tuesday.  You are not allowed to bring them.  You can bring your lunchbox for lunch, a chapter book for after testing and a snack.
  • Testing will not stop for snack, so we won’t be taking a break for this.  Snack breaks will occur after testing each day, if needed. 
  • There is a 4 hour time limit for testing, so we will NOT pause testing for an organized break.  It will be an as-needed basis during testing.
  • Lunch is at 10:30 each day.  It is silent lunch on both days.  No visitors are allowed on campus for lunch on Monday or Tuesday, due to STAAR testing.
  • Make sure you bring your glasses if you wear glasses.
  • Bring a chapter book to read each day, for when you finish the test.  When you finish, you can only read your book, that is all.
  • Dress comfortable on Monday & Tuesday.  You might want to bring a light jacket if you get cold.
  • Relax and do your best.  You can do it!  Rock the test!

Hooray, it's Spring Break!!!!!

Be sure to come back to school on March 19.

We will be taking Reading and Math benchmark tests on March 21st and 22nd. These tests will be used to determine your child's current strengths and weaknesses. Any areas of weakness will be addressed with additional classroom instruction and targeted homework before the STAAR, and students with strengths will be given classroom extension assignments to help then achieve an advanced rating on the STAAR. The benchmark tests will be treated like a STAAR testing day so the students will know what to expect when the actual STAAR takes place. This will reduce stress levels and give them an opportunity to ask questions beforehand. Please make sure your child is well rested and eats a nutritious breakfast on these test days so s/he is able to perform at his/her best. If you have any questions, please contact your child's teacher. 

Lunch Time

Please discuss with your child what your expectations for eating a nutritious lunch are. Lately, it has been observed that many students are buying several snacks, throwing away the nutritious parts of their lunches, and eating only the junk food such as chips, ice-cream, gummies,  and cookies.  You can check online to see exactly what your child is purchasing if you aren't sure.  Good food also improves behavior and ability to learn. Thank you for keeping your child as healthy as possible!
