STAR Testing

Testing begins 9/9/13

STAR Math & Reading testing begins on Monday, September 9. Parents please be sure to have your children to bed on time, eating a good dinner and breakfast, and focused. This is one of the indicators we use to determine where each child is at in both math and reading. We also use this data to better determine how we can differentiate our instruction to best fit your child's needs. It is important that we get the students best effort on these online, dynamic tests, but equally important that we do not stress them out to the point of causing them to do poorly. Thanks for your collaborative effort!
