Counselors Corner: Testing

Testing is a part of education. Next week 3rd and 4th graders are taking STAAR tests. If your child isn't a 3rd or 4th grader, they still have tests and these tips can be helpful. As parents, there are some things we can do to help set our child up for success, whether it's a STAAR test, spelling test, or any test!


  • If you are anxious about your child's test, it's ok but try to keep cool around your child, you don't want them to get anxious about their tests too.
  • Encourage your child to do well but don't pressure them. You may stress your child out. It is important for your child to stay relaxed for the test.
  • Keep a positive attitude about tests.
  • Make sure that your child gets enough sleep on the night before the test.
  • Ensure that your child eats a healthy breakfast and avoid heavy foods that may make him/her groggy and avoid high sugar foods that may make him/her hyper.
  • Make sure that your child gets up early enough so that he/she will be on time to school.

Thanks for all you do to prepare your child for school, tests, and life. You , afterall, are their most important teacher!

4th Grade Track Meet

The Hartman 4th grade track meet is May 20th. The track meet will take place at the Wylie Stadium. It will begin at 9:30 and end at 1:30. Students need a sack lunch, water bottle, and running shoes. Parents are welcome to come cheer for your student. For safety reasons, all adults must have a background check on file in order to enter the track meet. If not, you will be required to go back to your campus and check-in. If you have any questions, please contact our PE teacher Coach Angela Haskins.

Congratulations to Lia Nibabi for Being Selected as the Jimmy John's Student of the Week!
