April 8TH - (Monday) – “WELCOME BACK TRACK A”
“CST TESTING BEGINS FOR ALL 2ND -6TH GRADERS ON TRACKS C & D” – Please help your child to do their best by ensuring a good night’s sleep and they arrive to school on time. Students who are late will not be allowed into the classroom until the testing session for that day is completed. Missed tests will have to be taken as a make-up.
Evidence suggests that students who eat a good breakfast perform better on the tests. Students in 2nd -6th grades on Tracks C & D who eat breakfast at school for the next two weeks will be entered into a drawing for fabulous prizes. That’s right, eat breakfast at school during testing weeks and be entered to win!
If you have any questions about testing, please contact your child’s teacher or the California Department of Education website at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sr/.
