PASS Testing

Tomorrow, all 4th and 5th graders will take the Social Studies PASS test.


Please be reminded of a few simple things that will help your child be

successful during testing:

1. Parents should schedule appointments and out of school activities for another

day. All students will make up tests that are missed.

2. Testing will begin at 8:00 each day. Be sure your child is well-rested and on

time. Avoid a rushed morning or discussions that may upset your child.

3. Have your child eat a healthy and filling breakfast.

4. Parents and students in the building are not permitted any electronic devices

during testing. This includes cell phones, calculators, and watches with alarms.

5. Encourage your child to do his/her best on all days of testing. Eliminate

pressure and send them off with a hug and a smile.

Students are encouraged to check out this website: www.testtakingtips.com to

access ideas about being successful on tests of all kinds and what to do about

getting nervous about tests.
