Making the Days Count

Welcome back from Spring break! We are delighted to see your children as we head into the final quarter of the 2017-18 school year. Each school day is important, and we are working hard to make sure every day counts! Students are reading, writing, working in math, science and social studies. Additionally they are working in teams on projects, participating in school events, and 5th grade is completing their physical fitness testing. It is a very busy season in school!

We are approaching our state testing period for grades 3-8. Standard Elementary state testing runs from April 30th to May 11th. We encourage each student to be on time every day, especially during our testing days.

Here are some ways your family can help prepare your student for state testing.

  • Make sure your child gets plenty of sleep each night.
  • Be on-time to school so your child may get a healthy breakfast before testing.
  • If your child is sick on a testing day, please make sure to contact the school.
  • Encourage your student to be positive about their abilities. Use positive language about the expectations of the test.
  • The tests are untimed, so remind your child that they have as much time as they need to do their best.
  • Remind students to use their scratch paper when working on math problems.
  • Let your child know this a time for students to "show what they know."
  • There is no need to stress about testing outcomes, just encourage your student daily.

We greatly appreciate the home-school relationship in working together for your child's success. We love our Standard families and are so proud of the academic achievements of our students!
