Dear Parent(s) and Guardian(s):
As our winter is moving behind us and spring weather will soon be upon our children with warmer days, also remember that State testing occurs too. As you are aware, the State tests provide teachers and the district information to help target assistance to our students and identify skills that are going well. That said, kindly remember that children in grades 3-8 will be taking the New York State English Language Arts Assessment and Math Assessment.
The ELA tests are scheduled for Tuesday, March 28th; Wednesday, March 29th; and Thursday, March 30th. The Math exam is scheduled for Tuesday, May 2nd; Wednesday, May 3rd; and Thursday, May 4th.
The Grade 4 and Grade 8 Science Performance Tests are scheduled for Wednesday, May 24th through Friday, June 2nd. The Grade 4 and Grade 8 Written Tests are scheduled for Monday, June 5th
To help ensure that your child does well, please remind them to have a good night’s sleep before returning to school on the first day of testing and eat a good breakfast. Also, please be sure they arrive to school on time the day of testing. Should you have additional questions, feel free to contact our counselor, Ms. Bishop or me.
Dr. Robert L. Chakar, Jr., Ed.D.
Superintendent of School
