State Testing Has Started!

CAASPP stands for the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress and these tests are mandated for all school students beginning in grade 3.  The tests cover English Language Standards and Grade Level Math Standards.  In grades 5, 8 and 12, students will take Science tests as well.  

This week, grades 3 & 4 will begin with their Math testing, grade 5 will begin ELA testing and our 8th graders will begin with their Science testing.  Our high school scholars will be focusing on AP tests for the next two weeks and will begin state testing on May 17th.
 
Here are some tips to help your child prepare:
 
  • Eat a well-balanced breakfast
  • Arrive at school on time to prevent any stress
  • Pack a healthy nutritious snack, lunch, and bottled water
  • Participate in positive self-talk
  • Do your best and find confidence in the fact that students have been preparing for these assessments all year through their engaging lessons with their teachers
