Autism Awareness Month

April is autism awareness month. EastView is honoring our fellow students and families who are touched by Autism by launching our own Buddy Bench project. This project is representative of our school’s heart for inclusion and love for all students.


We are voting this week: (TUESDAY)

Each class will have one student drawing of the design their class choose displayed on a jar. Each QUARTER is a vote. Please only send quarters or dollars to help with counting.


THE WINNING DESIGN for the school will be recreated onto a real bench for our playground.

TESTING WEEK TIPS (grades 3-5)

  • Get plenty of rest (early bedtime)
  • Attendance - try your best to come to school so you don't have to take make-up tests
  • Eat breakfast (arrive by 7:55 am if you want to eat at school)
  • Be at school on time. (by 8:00 am is best/8:15 is tardy)
  • Pack a snack/water bottle - we will take a snack break
  • Wear comfy clothes - pack a light jacket if you get cold in classrooms
  • Try to relax to avoid anxiety; Videos, books help with Anxiety (links below)

Testing Schedules - Resumes Monday

The state of Tennessee requires students in grades 3-5 to take the TN Ready Test.


Grades 3-5 will begin testing on April 19th. The last day of testing will be April 27th.


Any student who misses a test will be required to make up the test when they return to school. PLEASE do not be absent unless it is absolutely necessary or an emergency. Do not schedule any appointments before noon. We will be testing!

.


Grades K-5 will take NWEA during the month of May. This test helps us monitor growth and identify students who may need intervention through RTI, summer learning camp, or tutoring.



Parents:


Arrival: Please make sure to have your students to school on time. Students in grades 3-5 should be here no later than 8:05, but by 8:00 am is even better.


Hunger: EVERY STUDNENT EATS FREE but YOU MUST ARRIVE BY 7:45 am.

Students will test better if they are not hungry. So, please make sure they have had breakfast. The cafe closes at 8:00 am.


Rest: Please make sure your child has an early bedtime during testing. Thirty minutes earlier than normal is a great idea. Testing is tiring for students.



ABSENT/TARDY:


STUDENTS WHO ARE ABSENT DO HAVE TO MAKE UP THE TESTS. IF YOU ARE TARDY, YOU HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL THE CLASS FINISHES A TEST BEFORE JOINING THE CLASS. MORE THAN LIKELY, TARDY STUDENTS WILL HAVE TO WAIT AND TEST IN THE AFTERNOON.
