Benchmark Testing this Week

Dearest Parents and/or Important People,

Our Third, Fourth and Fifth graders will be taking STAAR benchmarks next week. Please look for more details from your child’s teacher(s).

These assessments will guide our ongoing instruction in the Spring semester. Your learner(s) will take the tests as follows:

Tuesday, Mar. 29th - 3rd, 4th & 5th Math

Wednesday, Mar. 30th - 5th Science

Thursday, Mar. 31st - 3rd, 4th & 5th Reading

On each day start time approximately: 8:10-8:15 am (The test will take part on the designated day and students will have a four hour time limit work each day. )

Students have worked hard this year and have many skills to demonstrate on these two days. We are confident your students are well prepared and ready to give it 100%. A few tips to maximize your son and/or daughter(s) success are…

  1. Students should arrive on time. Please do your best to make sure there are not any conflicts with out of school appointments on these days for your student.

  2. Get a good night’s rest in order to feel alert and ready to focus.

  3. Every learner will need their charged chromebook - we will have all students leave their device at school on Monday - be sure you bring your charging cord.

  4. Eat a healthy breakfast either at home or at school.

  5. Have a positive send off for your student in the morning. Students should feel supported by you as well as confident that they are prepared. We know some nerves are typical and healthy. Again, we will assure students that all the hard work until this point of the year is their preparation.

We want to remind parents and students that on testing day all cell phones and/or electronics including smart watches must be turned in to the teacher during the test for test security reasons. Cell phones will be taken care of and returned as soon as testing has concluded. We understand students have phones for various reasons and just want to encourage them to follow procedure and turn them in. Thanks in advance for reminding your student to do so.

Please be advised that students will have a slightly altered schedule on this day based upon testing. Teachers will communicate further about this with parents impacted. If you have any questions please feel free to contact your child’s teacher or our office at 972-947-9452.

Chavez Proud,

Christine Gibson

Principal, Cesar Chavez Elememtary
