At dismissal, students who are singing at the game will meet in the multi-purpose room. CHAMPS students should check-in with CHAMPS personnel before coming to the multi-purpose room.
There is no specific uniform for the performance, but students are welcome to wear Mansfield colors, jerseys, T-shirts, jackets, etc., while we cheer on the teams.
For any families who would like to come watch the kids sing, please meet the chorus out on the field located in front of the Jordan/Jackson school building. The chorus will sing prior to the start of the game at around 3:30 pm.
All parents/guardians will need to come to the field no later than 4pm to sign out your student. The person picking up the student must show a picture ID. The name of the person on the ID must match the name of the person on the permission slip. Students may not leave until they have been signed out. After students have been signed out, families are welcome to stay and watch the game.
An adult will walk CHAMPS students back to the building when the chorus finishes singing where they will proceed with their usual CHAMPS activities.

HERE'S SOME TEST TAKING TIPS FOR YOU AND YOUR CHILD DURING MCAS
To Reduce Test Anxiety
Parents and families can do several things to create a positive test-taking experience and help students prepare for tests. “Test anxiety” is worrying too much about doing well on a test. It can keep students from doing their best. Some ways to help reduce anxiety are:
● Talk about the test in a positive way.
● Encourage best effort.
● Encourage your child to focus on his or her strengths, such as a good memory or strong analytical skills.
● Assure your child that the test is only one measure of academic performance.
● Assure your child that their teacher has provided them with excellent strategies to help them have a successful test experience. Remind your child to be confident and use these strategies.
● Make sure your child gets a good night's sleep and has a good breakfast.
Remember—you are very important to your child’s success in school and in life. Your interest and support let your child know you believe in them and that you value education. We hope these suggestions help you help your child have a positive testing experience.
