The M-Step assessment is an important part of your child’s educational process. We have been reviewing material and discussing positive test taking skills with our students over the past month. The assessment process at CUES begins on Tuesday, April 16th. We ask parents to help provide support for their child in the following ways:


*Encourage your child to get a good night of sleep.

* Help to ensure your child eats breakfast. We will provide a snack for your child each day of the M-Step assessment. Students are welcome to bring a water bottle.

*Please be sure your child attends school on time.

*Talking about the importance of the M-Step assessment with your child will encourage them to do their best.

*Your child is welcome to use their own headphones during testing. With support from the PTO and Dr. Campbell, Mr. Moore has also worked really hard to ensure every student has a comfortable pair for testing. Thank you so much to Mr. Moore, Dr. Campbell and the Columbia Elementary PTO!


Please see the schedule below for the dates and times for testing: (Students may not need to test every day during the dates listed below. The assessment period allows for students to move at their own pace.)
