Testing Tips

It is our sincere desire for all of our students to do their best.  Our counselor, Mrs. Patti Bill, has provided some helpful tips to prepare students for successful testing.

The following are some things you can do at home to help your child do his or her best during testing: 

  • Help your child feel confident about taking the tests.  Express confidence in your child’s ability to do well.
  • Make sure your child goes to bed early enough to get plenty of rest. 
  • Set the alarm a little early in order to allow your child to get ready without      rushing.
  • Help your child select clothing that is comfortable and lay it out the night before to avoid frantic searches in the morning.
  • Have school materials together and ready to be put in the backpack.
  • Make sure your child eats a nutritious breakfast each morning.  If they are not breakfast eaters, make sure they drink milk or juice.
  • Please make sure your child is on time each day!  School starts at 7:40.  The carline opens at 7:10 and closes at 7:35. 
  • Have two #2 pencils with erasers for your child each day.
