Please contact the front office or me if you have not yet scheduled a conference. If you would like to request a conference with both Mr. G. and I, please let us know so we can schedule one.
As you all must know, the children will be taking the Massachusetts
Comprehensive Assessment System Tests this spring. The dates have
been scheduled for:
Long Composition- March 18th
ELA MCAS Tests - March 25th & 26th
Two test days during this time frame
Math MCAS Tests - May 14th & 15th
Two test days dring this time frame
It is important that your child gets a good night's rest and eats a good
breakfast. It is also important that your child attend school on the
scheduled dates. While make-up dates are possible to arrange, make-ups are
not usually under optimal conditions, so please try to avoid any absence. If
a child misses a make-up date, the child will score a zero for the
particular test missed.
It is important for them to feel a sense of respect for the MCAS tests and a
motivation to do their best.
