Parents can help their children be prepared to do their best by following these guidelines:
*make sure your student gets a good night’s rest before test day
*make sure your child eats a healthy breakfast
*make sure your child arrives to school on time (tardy students may not be allowed to test)
*no early release before 1:30 pm (for doctor/dentist appointments)
*send a book for your child to read after he/she finishes testing
*send a bottle of water and a healthy, NON-MESSY snack each day of testing (lunch is later due to the test, so students will get hungry without a snack) Some good choices are peanut butter/cheese crackers, goldfish crackers, pretzels, nuts, granola bars or trail mix. Snacks that are juicy or leave a lot of residue on fingers such as oranges or Cheetos can not be allowed because the mess could cause a student’s test document to be invalidated.
Thank you for partnering with us to help ensure your student has a successful testing experience!

Music: The month of March is dedicated to celebrating Music In Our Schools Month (MIOSM)!!! We are “Wild About Music” here at Life School Red Oak! Ask your child why they are “Wild About Music” and have them give you a few reasons.
“Wild About Music” fun reasons of the week:
- Music builds my self esteem
- I feel proud of my accomplishments in Music
- Music uses both sides of my brain
- I get to sing in Music
Computer: Parents: Here are some free educational websites you can use at home with your students. Some of these sites even have apps that you can download for free.
Students, be sure to always ask for permission from your parent or guardian before accessing the world wide web.
