We are currently in the midst of very important testing for our students. 3rd graders have already completed the reading portion of their TCAP testing, but there is more testing to be done. Next week, 3rd through 5th grades will all participate in TCAP testing. It is important that we make sure these kids are getting plenty of rest and a healthy breakfast each morning. With our support during these high pressure times, I know our students can perform well! Make sure you check out our “Tips for TCAP” below and discuss them with your children.
With all this intense testing it’s a good thing Spring Break is right around the corner. Our older students will have just wrapped up their testing and will need the break, but make sure they continue to study. The best way to do this is to simply encourage them to read over the break. Make a habit out of it. I suggest a family reading night, where the whole family sits together and reads each other stories. Or visit our local library.
In the meantime, our tutoring and Lights On After School programs will soon be winding down. They will end when we take our Spring Break.
Yours in Partnership,
