The second semester at DTPA is well underway. We are heading into state testing season as our scholars will begin testing in April. The scholars will be tested in grades 3rd – 8th in reading, math, and science (5th & 8th grade). The scholars have been working hard on developing best test taking strategies, gaining mastery of key concepts and practicing Common Core critical thinking skills. We are sure our scholars will be prepared for their best performance on these tests.
Parents, you too can support your child’s preparation for state testing.
How can I help my child prepare for the test? You are an important part of your child’s education. Some things you can do to help your child are:
*Discuss the test with your child. Make sure they are not scared or anxious.
*Tell your child that you and their teacher have high expectations and that you are both there to help them every step of the way.
*Make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep and a nutritious breakfast before testing.
*Review test results with your child and discuss with their teacher where they might need additional help.
