On the Horizon

  • May is State/CAASPP Testing for Grades 3-5
  • Testing will occur during the first two weeks in May on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 8 am - 9:30 am. Where possible, please do not schedule appointments during these days/times.

State Testing Starts this Week!

You Got This! is our theme for state testing for this year. Cottage Hill students have worked on practice tests and test-taking strategies throughout the year to prepare for state testing. This week, please share with your child that they are ready, and have everything they need to do well on the state exams.

How Parents Can Help

  • Ensure your student is at school and arrives on time on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Our schoolwide testing block - quiet zone is from 8:00 am - 9:30 am on those days.
  • Make sure your child gets a good night's sleep and a nutritious breakfast before testing.
