How can you help?
ü Encourage plenty of rest prior to and during testing.
üMake sure students have a healthy breakfast or get to school at 8 AM so they can eat at school.
üüSchedule student appointments before or after testing, not during testing week. Attendance that week is crucial for ALL students.
üüEnsure all students are at school on time. The fewer disruptions the better. Testing starts promptly at 8:35 AM.
üüExpress your love, pride and encouragement to all students.Testing can be stressful, but knowing you support their efforts can make a huge difference!
Thanks for all your support!
On January 21, 2015, Joyce Ashworth and Amy Haderer from RESA 8 provided Ranson Elementary Teachers with professional development on Next Generation Content Standards, Close Reading as well as Text Dependent Questioning. Teachers met in teams and participated in hands-on activities and group discussions to promote self-reflection on their teaching, in order to provide deeper thinking opportunities for our Ranson Elementary students and close achievement gaps.
