PREPARING FOR THE GEORGIA MILESTONES

* Encourage your child to go to bed at a reasonable time so he/she is well-rested.

* If you are dropping off your child in carpool, please make sure your child is ON-TIME!

* Provide your child with a wholesome and hearty breakfast.

* Pack your child a snack to eat after the test sessions. Lunch times will be altered, but students will be allowed to eat as soon as they finish both sections.

* Pack your child layers (in case the room feels too hot or too cold).

* Tell your child to do his/her best and that you believe in them!
