M-Step News


The M-Step assessment is an important part of your child’s educational process. We have been reviewing material and discussing positive test taking skills with our students over the past month. The assessment process at CUES begins on Tuesday, April 18. We ask parents to help provide support for their child in the following ways:


*Encourage your child to get a good night of sleep.

* Help to ensure your child eats breakfast. We will provide a snack for your child each day of the M-Step assessment. Students are welcome to bring a water bottle.

*Please be sure your child attends school on time.

*Talking about the importance of the M-Step assessment with your child will encourage them to do their best.

*Your child will feel most comfortable testing using their own headphones. Please help to make sure they have their headphones when testing. Thank you.


Please see the schedule below for the dates and times for testing: (Students may not need to test every day during the dates listed below. The assessment period allows for students to move at their own pace.)

5 Grade-Testing period- April 18-28, Make Up Testing 5/1-5/5

We appreciate your support and encouragement during this time. Students will continue to have their Specials but will have a modified schedule in their homeroom to accommodate testing. Please note there may not be as many grades entered in PowerSchool during your child’s assessment period.
