From Monday, April 8th through Wednesday, April 10th, students will participate in state tests designed to measure their achievement at grade level. We will not have block days during this week.
Monday, April 8 – CMAS Science test (11th grade students only)
Testing should be completed for most students by 11:30
Tuesday, April 9 – SAT test (11th grade students only)
Testing should be completed for most students by 12:30
Wednesday, April 10 – PSAT 9 and PSAT 10 (9th and 10th grade students only)
Testing should be completed for most students by 12:15
Thursday, April 11th and Friday, April 12th are regular school days.
We will not have block days during this week.
Regular classes will not be held on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday so students can take the tests with very few disruptions. After tests are complete, most teachers will be available for tutorial, AP test preparation, or consultations as needed. (Credit Recovery for Seniors will be on-going for all of these test days.)
Regular classes will be held again on Thursday and Friday, periods 1 through 8.
The 11th grade SAT is given at the state’s expense and student scores can be reported to scholarship programs, colleges and universities, as a part of a student’s submission process. Students will get an opportunity to choose 4 places to send their scores at no cost.
The most exciting part, is that students in grades 9th and 10th will take the PSAT test at the state’s expense. This will allow students, parents and teachers at East to measure what kids know in preparation for the 11th grade SAT. We can all use this information to support continued growth so your child can get their highest score on the SAT test.
Since these tests are an important tool in measuring students’ knowledge and growth, it is important that your child gets plenty of rest and eats a healthy breakfast. They should bring two sharpened numbered 2 pencils.
Because testing can be rigorous and long, it is recommended that your child bring water and a light snack if that is needed during the testing day. (They must pay attention to the teacher in the testing room so that water and snacks do not cause a disruption.)
