Information and News

STAAR Testing Information

Math STAAR - Monday, 4/20

Science STAAR - Wednesday, 4/22

  • Please get a good night's sleep in preparation for these important tests. If you normally sleep in on Sunday, try to get up earlier than usual so that you can go to sleep early on Sunday night!
  • Eat a healthy, good breakfast. Remember that sugar makes you feel good for a few minutes, but then you will experience "sugar crash!" Your brain needs healthy foods to fuel it, just like your body does.
  • Bring a snack to school if you wish. You may eat your snack right when you get to school, or you can eat it when everyone is finished testing.
  • Lunch will be at the normal time, but no visitors Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
  • Do not wear a watch that makes noise.
  • Do not bring a device (tablet or phone) on Monday or Wednesday. If you do, it will be collected before the test and returned to you when all students have finished testing.
  • Make sure you have at least one book to read for after you finish testing.
  • Wear comfortable clothes - LAYERS.
  • Come with a great attitude knowing that you are going to ROCK THE STAAR!!

Please start bringing in round toothpicks and liquid glue for science activities that will be done the week after STAAR.
