Attention Gr 3 and 4 Parents...
RICAS Testing Dates
Gr 3 April 23, 24 and May 14,15
Gr 4 April 25, 26 and May 8,9
Make sure your child gets a good night's sleep and eats a healthy breakfast
Many teachers report that students who don't do well on tests haven't gotten enough sleep, and haven't eaten breakfast on the morning of the test. Doing both of these things will ensure that your child is working at full capacity.
Staying calm will help your child stay calm. If he/she gets nervous about the test or is likely to experience anxiety during the test, help her practice some relaxation techniques that he/she can try once she's taking the test
On Time- Please have your child to school on time as your child will not be allowed to enter the classroom once testing has begun.
Ms. Martin will plan for an extra outdoor activity and snack during testing days.
