ISTEP is Coming

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As you are aware, we have been working diligently the past several months preparing for the ISTEP. Our final testing window for ISTEP will be April 18th – May 6th. We will start our testing on Monday, April 18th, 2016 and end on Friday, May 2th, 2016. On non-testing days, school will resume as normal for those students. We have a very tight schedule. We will be testing in all 7 computer labs. Please make sure you make every effort to have your child at school and on time on their tested day.

We ask that you prepare your child for the test by doing the following:

  • Make sure they have plenty of rest the night before, 8-10 hours is recommended.
  • Make sure they eat a good nutritious breakfast.
  • Make sure your child is in attendance and on time.
  • Encourage your child to take his/her time in completing the test and check to. make sure each question has been answered fully. Just talking about the test lets. your child know that you think it is important.
  • Do something fun with your child, as this is very stressful for them.
