Happy Sunday Family!
What a great week we are going to have!! It is "Teacher Appreciation Week"!!!!!! This is that time of year our scholars have the opportunity to show our teachers and staff how much they are appreciated. Trix Academy is very special to have teachers and staff who have been a part of our scholars lives for multiple years. They have watched our scholars grow up and have been a huge part is building both their academics success and character.
Take this time to let your teachers and staff know that you appreciate all the love and attention they have given you here at Trix. Please see the flier for some wonderful teacher appreciation ideas and themes for this week.
MSTEP testing continues next week. Below are are tips to support parents to prepare your scholars for testing next week!
Testing Tips for Parents
1. Make sure your child gets plenty of rest the night before the test.
2. On the morning of the test, your child needs to get up in plenty of time so he/she won't feel rushed.
3. Feed your child a good breakfast. Research shows that children do better on tests if they have had a good breakfast. (Trix Academy Breakfast runs from 8:05am-8:25am)
4. Do as much as you can to make your child feel comfortable. Try not to say things to make him/her feel more nervous.
5. Reassure your child that no matter the outcome of the test you will still love him/her. Encourage them to simply do their best.
6. Take an active role in your child's education throughout the school year. Let your child know you are interested in his/her learning by taking part in the entire process.
7. Give your child praise even if he or she didn't do well on the test.
Let's make it a wonderful week!!!
