Dear Parents,

This week all students in grades 1-7 will be taking the Iowa Assessment and the Cognative Abilities Test (CogAT).  These tests are nationally normed standardized tests designed to track the growth of student achievement across the curruculim.  The data collected from these assessments will allow our teachers to adjust their instruction to meet the need of all students. 

The assessments will be given by each homeroom teacher in the morning throughout the week.  I have requested that no homework be assigned for students during the testing period.  This should allow them time to relax in the evening and be prepared to do their best on the assessments.  

What can you do to help your child succeed?
  • Make sure they have a good nights sleep and eat a healthy breakfast.
  • Encourage them to try their best, without adding preasure to succeed.
  • Send your child to school with several sharpened, number 2, pencils.
The results of the assessments will be shared with you later this Spring when the scoring is complete.  
Many Blessings,

Steven J. Santoli
