Due to testing, our school will be in testing mode which means there is limited access/visitation to the school building. All observations, conferences, birthday celebrations, etc., will need to be scheduled with your child’s teacher.


The Georgia Department of Education offers the following points to help parents/guardians prepare your child for the Georgia Milestones:

Students who are prepared, calm, and rested perform better on tests. Here are some of the many ways to help your student approach Georgia Milestones in a relaxed, positive way:

• Encourage your student to employ good study and test-taking skills. These skills include following directions carefully, avoiding careless errors, and reviewing work.

• Explain the purpose of the tests. The assessments give students an opportunity to show what they have learned in school. They also give teachers information that helps them plan instruction.

• Point out that some items may be more difficult than others.

• Be certain your student gets plenty of sleep and has a healthy breakfast and lunch. Taking tests is hard work for many students and can require a lot of energy.

• Be certain your student is at school on time. Rushing and worrying about being late could affect performance on the tests.

• Remember to ask your student about the testing at the end of each day.

We want to wish our students much success on the Georgia Milestones.
