Testing Information


PARCC End of Year testing window for grades 3-5 opens April 13th ...

The testing schedule will be posted on the school's event calendar to the right...

The 3rd - 5th grade PARCC testing sessions will begin right after announcements each morning.

*Students who arrive late (after testing begins) on their scheduled testing date will not be able to enter the testing room. They will be sent to the library and will have to make up the missed test session at another time.


10 Ways to help your child with tests:

  1. Make sure your child gets a good night’s rest before every test.
  2. Serve your child a healthy breakfast on the test day and send healthful snacks for before/after testing times.
  3. Have your child dress comfortably and arrive at school on time*.
  4. Send your child off to school with words of praise and support.
  5. Suggest that your child do deep breathing exercises to relax before the test begins.
  6. Tell your child to follow directions carefully, and ask questions if something is not clear.
  7. Advise your child to do the easiest parts of the test first, then the rest.
  8. Remind your child to check over answers before turning in the test.
  9. If your child will feel more comfortable, briefly review the subject matter together for the upcoming tests.
  10. Encourage wanting to do well and trying their very best, but stress that one test won’t measure all your child can do.

Remember: Children who love learning are more likely to do better on tests.  Instill a positive attitude about school.
