Dear Propel Families,
We want to take a moment to remind you that 2016 PSSA testing will be taking place for all students in grades 3 – 8 during the weeks of April 11 – 15 (ELA testing 4/12 – 4/15) and April 18 – 22 (Math testing 4/18 – 4/20). Additional testing for grades 4 & 8 will take place during the week of April 25 – 29 (Science testing 4/26 & 4/27).
Please mark your calendars for these important weeks!
We strive to create optimal testing conditions for the students. Here are some handy hints for families to use both every day as well as during testing weeks:
- Prior to testing dates and during testing weeks, please make sure that your child has adequate rest
- During the week of testing, continue to encourage good nutrition and eating breakfast
- Arrive to school on time and ready to go
- Encourage students to concentrate and do their best
Both in and out of testing time, Propel’s goal is to provide a comprehensive education for your child. We do this each and every day. We encourage students to value the power of their education and the difference it will make in their futures. We work hard in our classrooms each day, so that students can confidently tackle these tests. We know that you want the very best for your students as well, so we appreciate your understanding and flexibility.
