Very important

VERY Important…

  • Your student needs to be present for every test. We will only have one week for make-ups, and students do better when they test with their regular classes and teachers

  • Be positive and encouraging with your student.

  • ENDURANCE is probably one of the most important skills… Support your student in completing complicated tasks and reading for extended periods of time

  • Make sure your students gets good rest, good exercise, and healthful food in the weeks leading up to the tests
