From the Principal

Dear Families,

Testing season is upon us once again. Students in grades 3,4, and 5 will be taking the NYS ELA and Mathematics exams in April and May. As we have reviewed with you over the last two years, the degree of difficulty on these exams has risen greatly due to New York's implementation of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Over this time, our teachers and students have worked tirelessly to implement and learn new curricula that aligns to the CCSS.

We will be encouraging students to do their best on the exams, but we also want to be careful not to raise students' anxiety about them as was documented to have happened in other schools across the state last year.

It is very important that children eat nutritious meals on the days leading up to their exams, as well as receive the proper amount of sleep in order to help them to perform optimally. We thank you for all of your efforts in helping your children succeed academically this year.
