Good Afternoon Families,
We wanted to update you that the ELA practice exam has been moved to Friday March 19th. 3rd and 4th grade scholars must sign on at 8:30AM SHARP, will take attendance, engage in Morning Meeting, take the practice exam, and will sign off once completed. We do not want scholars to rush to finish so that they can sign off. They must take the time they need to successfully complete the practice test.
On Friday March 26th, we will take the Math practice exam. Similar to the ELA structure, 3rd and 4th grade scholars must sign on at 8:30AM SHARP, will take attendance, engage in Morning Meeting, take the practice exam, and will sign off once completed.
We are making this change because the State Test will only be 1 day for ELA and 1 day for Math. Therefore, we will replicate that model by structuring our practice tests to be the same. Once we have more information about the state test format, we will update you right away. Decisions around the state test have been changing a ton on the state level so we will ensure that communication is sent to you as soon as we get clear on communication from NYS.
Please make sure scholars have a good night’s rest before each exam, have a quiet work space so that they can do their best work, ensure they are working independently without any help from relatives at home, and are pumped up to do their best!
Thank you again families for all that you are doing and continue to do to ensure our scholars are set up for success. I have tremendous amounts of gratitude for every one of our families.
