PARCC Testing Continues

Check the calendar to make sure you know when your child is taking the PARCC test in reading and math.  Students do much better when they are rested and on time for school on test days.  As stated on the PARCC parent resource page, "the PARCC assessments serve as an "educational GPS system," assessing students' current performance, and pointing the way to what students need to learn to be ready for the next grade level, for high school graduation, for college and/or a career. 

The PARCC assessments are designed to give schools and teachers more information to improve instruction. Moreover, PARCC is designed to let parents know how their child is progressing academically. This more detailed information can lead to a strong engagement between parents and teachers."  You can check out practice tests at
