State Testing Starts Soon (3rd-6th)!!!
CAASPP begins May 6th

On Test Day

Make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep and eats a healthy breakfast

Many teachers report that students who don’t do well on tests haven’t gotten enough sleep, and haven’t eaten breakfast on the morning of the test. Doing both of these things will ensure that your child is working at full capacity (Narang, 2008).

Make sure your child is prepared
