Students in grades 3-6 will begin preparation for the PARCC assessment in April. It is critical that you send your child to school every day and on time. Students who are well prepared will do better on the test with little frustration. The schedule for the PARCC Assessment will be sent out within the next month. There will be daily drawings and an overall award per grade level for perfect attendance during testing. Thank you for helping us ROCK the TEST!

On March 2nd, students will participate in a read-a-thon all day long. Students will read books and complete comprehension tests throughout the day. If you are interested in reading to a class or individual students, please inform the teacher. 

Benefits of daily attendance

By attending class regularly, your child is more likely to keep up with the daily lessons and assignments, and take quizzes and tests on time.

There are other benefits as well:

  • Achievement: Studies have shown that students who attended school regularly were more likely to pass reading and math assessments than students who didn't attend school regularly.
  • Exposure to the English language: Regular school attendance can also help students who are learning English by giving them the chance to master the skills and information they need more quickly and accurately — even in other subjects!
  • Being part of the school community: Just by being present at school, your child is learning how to be a good citizen by participating in the school community, learning valuable social skills, and developing a broader world view.
  • The importance of education: Your commitment to school attendance will also send a message to your child that education is a priority for your family, going to school every day is a critical part of educational success, and that it's important to take your responsibilities seriously — including going to school.
