Tomorrow and Friday, May 15th and May 17th, the students in the fifth grade will be taking the Science MCAS.
In order for your child to be properly prepared to take the test, we would like to suggest a few things.
1. A good night’s sleep is essential to being able to think and reason well.
2. On time arrival ensures that your child will avoid test preparation stress.
3. A hearty breakfast and HEALTHY morning snack provided from home for your child gives him/ her the fuel necessary to make it through the test without wilting or feeling sluggish.
Lunch will be later than usual for students on these two days (12:10). They will be allowed to have a morning snack before testing on both days. Please send your child with a healthy snack.
4. Encouragement from parents makes children want to do well.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support,
