Good Afternoon! Students are coming home today with a survey of personal interests. We will be participating in a Pen Pal assignment with 7th grade students in Poland who are in an English as a second language class. We will write our fist letter together as a class, the second letter we will begin together and they will finish on their own and the final letter will be completed independently. I will be reading every letter that goes out and every letter we receive from Poland. Please know that no personal information i.e. addresses, email or contact information will be provided to the students in Poland. If you have any further questions, please email me at Desiree_Metoyer@Etiwanda.org Thank you, Mrs. Metoyer

Dear Parents,

It’s almost that time again – standardized testing is right around the corner. We will be administering our test, April 24th through May 4th. (STUDENTS MUST HAVE EAR BUDS- DOLLAR TREE HAS THEM)

April 24th-April 27th- MATH 8th/ELA 7th

May 1st- May 4th- ELA 8th/Math 7th

You play an important part in helping students give their best performance on this important test. As you know, we have been busy preparing and reinforcing the skills necessary for students to demonstrate their learning. Even though this assessment is a snapshot—one single perspective – it is important that our students have every advantage to do their very best. We don’t want to cause test anxiety, rather we want our students to be as prepared as possible. There are many ways in which you can help your child put his/her best foot forward. The following can help set our students up for success:

The night before the test:

1. Make sure your child goes to bed on time so he or she is well-rested.

2. Keep your routine as normal as possible. Upsetting natural routines may make children feel insecure.

3. Be positive and confident in the fact that you know your child will do his/her best. 

4. Plan ahead to avoid conflicts on the morning of the test.

The morning of the test:

1. Get up a few minutes early to avoid rushing and make sure your child arrives at school on time.

2. Have your child eat a nutritious breakfast. There is a strong correlation between eating breakfast and memory and cognitive functioning.

3. Have your child dress comfortably.

4. Be positive and communicate that this is your child’s chance to show what he/she knows. The most important thing you can do right before the test is to build confidence about doing his/her very best.

After the test:

1. Talk to your child about his/her feelings about the test.

2. Discuss what was easy and what was hard; discuss what your child learned from the test.

3. Explain that performance on a test does not define him or her as a person. It is just one opportunity to demonstrate learning.

Thank you for your continued support and involvement in your child’s education. Together we can make a difference!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Metoyer

SBAC- 
Testing begins next week on Tuesday, April 23rd. Please be sure students are getting to bed on time and eating a healthy breakfast to begin their day. This is a great time to encourage your students to show off all they have learned, by doing the best they can on the SBAC and taking it seriously.
