3rd and 4th Grade Math STAAR Test May 9
Our 3rd -4th grade students will take the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Readiness (STAAR) on Tuesday May 9th for Math. The purpose of this letter is to give you an understanding of the test, specific dates for each test, and to give you a few ideas for helping your child to do his/her best on these tests. These assessments are required by the Texas Education Agency and are used to evaluate school district performance as well as individual student performance. These assessments measure how well students have mastered the content and skills identified in the TEA standards. Please save and reference these dates to ensure your child is well prepared to do their best on these assessments. The most important thing that you can do for your child during testing is make sure that he/she comes to school on the days they have tests. Making up a missed test means time out of class and losing important learning time that cannot be made up. In addition to attendance, your child will do his/her best on the tests if they:
· take the tests seriously and give his or her best effort,
· get to bed early the night before to be well-rested on the day of the test,
· have a good breakfast on the morning of the test,
· come to school on time.
This testing is very important for your child. Let’s do everything in our power to help our children succeed! Thank you for supporting your child and our school during this test. Additional resources regarding the STAAR assessment can be found at LPSFrisco.com. Please call if you have any questions. PLEASE NOTE THAT NO VISITORS WILL BE ALLOWED ON CAMPUS DURING TESTING WEEKS. THERE WILL BE NO LUNCH VISITS ON TESTING WEEKS:
