We will begin the 2017 PARCC reading and math tests on Thursday, March 30. Please do not schedule any appointments during testing. We are unable to dismiss students during tests. Classrooms cannot be disturbed during testing, so we cannot give messages to students regarding picking up lunch, forgotten items, transportation changes, etc. Here are tips to follow to be very well prepared to show what you know:
* Be here and on time! Excellent attendance during the testing window (March 30 through April 7) will be rewarded! You will not be able to go to class if you arrive late.
* Get a good night’s sleep
* Eat a nutritious breakfast
* Try your best! You may not know everything on the tests. Just do your best with what you know!
* If you have questions about the PARCC test/schedule, ask your “home base” teachers – 8th graders = 1st hour teachers; 7th graders = 2nd hour teachers
CELL PHONE POLICY: Cell phones are not allowed in classrooms during testing sessions. On testing days, be sure your phone is turned off and stored safely in your locker PRIOR to entering your testing classroom. Thank you!
