Greetings RSMA Parents,
I am writing to give you some updates and information as we enter testing season. Please keep in mind that the ELA exam will be administered on April 11-12, and the Math exam on May 1-2.
Our teachers have been engaged in professional development and planning with both ELA and math consultants since January to ensure they are effectively preparing our students for both the ELA and Math exams. The teachers will be sending home test prep books and specific homework for your children over the next 8-10 weeks to ensure that you can support this work at home. It is very important that you support your children in doing this work to ensure they are prepared for the state tests.
At home you can support your children in getting ready for the state exams by reading with them and/or ensuring they are reading every night. We also ask that you work with your child on completing all homework assignments and utilizing the test prep books according the teacher’s instructions.
If you have any questions about test preparation or the test in general, please reach out to your child’s teacher. Thank you for your ongoing support.
