STAAR Testing Information

April 9th - 5th Grade Math

April 10th - 5th Grade Reading

Our campus will be closed to visitors on April 9th and 10th due to STAAR testing. There will be no parent lunches on these days. If at all possible, try not to schedule any appointments on those days. If needed, students who are absent on those days will be given the opportunity to make up the missed tests.

This test is very important, and it is important that all students be in attendance on test days. There are several things that you can do to help your child be successful on this test.

  • Make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep the night before the test.
  • Make sure your child eats a healthy breakfast the morning of the test.
  • Have your child arrive at school on time that morning so he/she does not feel rushed.
  • Do not schedule any appointments for your child on April 9th or 10th.
  • Finally, send your child to school that day with a hug and words of encouragement.
