This week, students in 3rd grade will be taking the State AIR Assessments. It is very important for your child to do their best on these tests. The data from these assessments are used to identify students’ strengths, areas to improve on, and allow us to determine each student’s individual needs. Please encourage your child to take their time and work to the best of his/her ability.
Attendance on testing days is extremely important. Please refrain from scheduling doctor appointments on these days as it is always best to have students test in their own classroom. Any child who arrives late to school for the State AIR Assessment will not be permitted to join the class for the test. He or she will have to make it up at an alternative time.
Below are a few suggestions to help your child be successful on each of these assessments:
Keep a positive attitude about tests.
Mark down test days on your calendar so you and your child are both aware of when testing days are occurring.
Make sure your child gets enough sleep the night before the test.
Ensure that your child eats a healthy breakfast. It is difficult to concentrate when you are hungry. Breakfast will still be available at school.
Make sure your child gets up early enough so that he/she will be on time to school and won't feel rushed.
Thank you so much for your support at home!
