Spring Testing is Almost Here!

Indigo Cluster 3rd grade students will begin taking the Smarter Balanced Test in beginning May 16th.  We will be practicing for the assessment so that our students will get used to the new format.  We are also encouraging you to practice at home as well as we will have limited access to the laptops since the rest of the school is currently using them for testing.  You may  access the practice test online at:  http://www.smarterbalanced.org/assessments/practice-and-training-tests/ .  You can then click on "Go to the Tests" and click on "Sign in"  to get started.  

 

Testing Treats

Our third grade students will be taking the Smarter Balanced Test for extended periods of time.  During testing, we will be giving our students the option to have a mint or hard candy to keep them going.  If you can donate individually wrapped life savers(mint flavored works well), jolly ranchers, or any other hard candy, we would really appreciate it.  You may begin sending in the donations on Monday.  

We would like to also give them an after test snack for all their focused effort.  Please email us if you would be able to send in granola bars, fruit, or any other treat for after the test to let us know which day you will be sending it in.  We would give it the entire class(including second graders) on test days(May 16-May 19).
