PARCC Testing Letter from Mrs. Bruner

 

Dear Families,
         
In 2014-2015, the PARCC (Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for College and Career) will replace the former statewide assessments. Students will be testing during the first three weeks of March. If you are scheduling appointments during these weeks, please try to schedule them after 11:00 AM. If your child will be out any of these mornings, please let your child’s teacher know ahead of time so we can arrange a make-up time for your child.
 
The purpose of the PARCC “is to provide quality assessments of students’ progress towards secondary readiness and success.” With the results, we can adjust our curriculum plan considering the progress of each student. These assessments do not determine students’ grades or placements for next year.
 
All teachers have prepared students for the assessments. Students should feel comfortable because they have experienced several assessments similar to the PARCC. Students are encouraged to bring their own ear buds to use during the assessments. We will have disposable ear buds for students who are unable to bring their own set. You can help your child be prepared by:
 
    • Making sure your child gets plenty of rest.
    • Making sure your child eats a good breakfast.
    • Making sure your child is here on time every morning during the assessments.
    • Encouraging your child to do his/her best work.
    • Reassuring your child; they do not need to feel stress, help them stay relaxed.
 
Please send a healthy snack and (100%) juice box/pouch with your child on each day of the assessments to provide an extra brain-boost. Thank you for helping us to promote positive attitudes and excellent attendance. We appreciate the efforts of our families and students.
 
Sincerely,
 
 
 
Mrs. Bruner, Principal                                Miss Sloan, School Counselor
