March 2017 Dear Parents / Guardians:
Our state appointed M-STEP testing window for students in grades 3rd through 8th, as well as 11th grade, will begin on April 14 and runs through May 26th. Our testing schedule is below:
April 19th = 11th grade testing
April 17 through April 21 = 5th and 8th grade will be testing
April 24 through April 28 = 5th and 8th grade will be testing
April 28th = 3rd grade will be doing a “practice test”
May 1 through May 3 = 3rd grade will be testing
May 8 through May 10 = 4th grade will be testing
May 15 through May 19 = 4th, 6th, and 7th grades are testing
May 22 through May 24 = 7th grade will be testing
During the week(s) your student is testing please encourage your child by setting early bedtimes and providing a nutritious breakfast. Also, reminding your child of your confidence in his/her abilities goes a long way to relieving normal anxieties.
Parents of 11th graders, just a reminder, on March 21st your student will be bubbling for the SAT+Writing test they will be taking on April 11th. On April 12th your student will be taking the ACT WorkKeys test. These tests are part of the MME testing requirement. The PAC doors will close at 8:30 both days. If your student arrives late they will have to make-up the test(s). The make-up window runs from April 25th through April 27th.
Parents of 9th and 10th graders, the PSAT test will be given to your student on April 11th, as well. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to give me or your child’s teacher a call.
