Springtime is Testing Time!

As you probably already know, this this time of year means testing is upon us once again. At Paradise Intermediate, we work hard to keep testing as stress-free as possible for our students. We encourage all students to get a good night's sleep before testing and to eat a healthy breakfast that morning. Students are allowed to bring a healthy snack to school on testing days. Please make sure snacks are not sticky or messy. They may also bring water to drink during the test. Here are the upcoming dates for STAAR:


  • Monday, May 9...........................4th Grade Math
  • Tuesday, May 10.........................4th Grade Reading
  • Wednesday, May 11...................5th Grade Science
