Seahawks,

 

As you know, every spring, our students take the Caaspp Exam for English Language Arts and mathematics. Results from these assessments are just one piece of information to help teachers, parents/guardians, and students understand how well a student is meeting  grade-level standards.

The formal testing dates for this school year begin Monday, April 30th and conclude Monday, May 29th (dates include actual testing dates and make-ups). Students will be testing in their English and Math classes, and will be on a block schedule Wednesday and Thursday, May 2nd and 3rd,  (please see below). It is important that your child have the time necessary to perform at their best on the tests, so please make sure to be on time daily and avoid scheduling appointments that would require your student to miss any part of the school day during the testing periods.

 

Period 1/2

Wednesday we will have period 0, 1 , 3, and 5.  On Thursday we will have periods, 0, 2, 4, and 6.  Zero period will be regular time.

In addition, headphones will be used during portions of the test.  If your student would like to use their own earbuds they may bring them to school.  Please make sure that your student also brings with them a silent reading book so they have something to read if they are done testing in class. 

Last year our middle school had a significant increase in test scores. We hope to continue our improvement by making this year even greater!

Thank you for helping us provide your student with the best educational environment possible. 

Please feel free to contact the office if you are in need of assistance at (949) 498-1660.

Go Seahawks!
