NECAPS Testing & School Picutres


NECAP TESTING

It is that time of year again!  Next week we will begin testing members of our Junior class in Mathematics, Reading, and Writing for the 2012-2013 NECAP (New England Common Assessment Program).

The New England Common Assessment Program is one of the important tools available to parents and educators to determine how well our schools are helping students meet standards and grade level expectations. In every assessment, scores are only as meaningful as the effort students put into the tests. Encourage your child to take the tests seriously and to give his or her best effort. You can best help your child prepare for the assessment by making sure that she or he is rested on the days the tests will be given. And, as with every day, it is critical that students have a good breakfast before heading off to school. Thank you for supporting your child and our school during the testing period.

Testing is mandatory for all juniors and they will be required to report to the gymnasium by 7:50am in order to be seated for the administration to begin promptly at 7:55am.  It is also important to note that Late Arrival for all Junior students on 10/3 and 10/4 is cancelled.  Also, early dismissal on Wednesday 10/10 is cancelled due to the reverse order of the school day.
