MCAS

Dear Parents,

Our statewide testing schedule will begin on Monday, April 3rd.   Assessments, like the MCAS tests measure how well students have learned the standards and give students an opportunity to demonstrate what they know.  The results of these test help us to make adjustments to curriculum and instruction in our classrooms.  We also use the results to target student needs in order to  provide additional assistance or an extension of learning.  Our teachers use the  assessment to ensure the proper alignment of the curriculum with the state standards and to adjust their instruction to accommodate student learning needs.

You can help your child by ensuring that he/she is well-rested and has a good breakfast. Remind your child to do his/her best.  Please reassure your children by letting them know that this test is for the school to know if we are doing a good job teaching our students!  Also, please dress your child appropriately so that he/she is comfortable during the testing sessions.  If you have any questions about the test, please don’t hesitate to contact me.  The testing schedule is listed below for you.

Sincerely,

Kathryn Castonguay
