K-6 AZMERIT & AIMS SCHEDULE
The AZMerit and AIMS Science test are scheduled to be administered over 3 weeks in April to our 3rd through 6th Graders. We are SO EXCITED for our students to have the opportunity to show off what they know and how hard they have been working in school! We KNOW they are going to ROCK THEIR TESTS!
AZMerit tests are computer based and NEW this year: The AIMS Science test will also be taken on the computer.  Please do not schedule extended vacations or appointments during these weeks. Our goal is 100% participation. For more information about the assessments, click here.

SPRING TESTING:
2018-02-13_1537
By working together, we can make your child's testing experience positive and successful. Here are some suggestions to help your child prepare at home:  
  • Successful test-takers tend to be students with good attendance, homework, and study habits; therefore, your child’s daily attention to homework and attitude toward school have the biggest impact on their overall school performance – which will naturally include the tests!
  • Students who struggle the most on testing days are the ones who didn't have enough sleep or a good breakfast the day of the test. Rest up and eat healthy foods!
  • Drink plenty of water - hydrate your body and brain!
  • Remind your child that they are AMAZING and have all they need to ROCK their test! 
  • The Arizona Department of Education is a wonderful resource. Check on: http://azmeritportal.org/ for parent guides and sample tests

****************
We have booked a science author for all of the 3rd & 4th grade team on Thursday, May 10th from 8:30am to 9:50am, during specials. The award winning author is Lynn Brunelle, she has written over 45 titles and is a four-time Emmy Award winning author for Bill Nye the Science Guy.  

Lynn Brunelle's new book, Turn This Book Into a Beehive, was just realeased! Her book pairs fun, sensory-driven activities that offer a deeper understanding of bee life and behavior with a book that can LITERALLY turn into a home for the mason bee. A non-aggressive, super-pollinator that does the work of over 100 honeybees, the mason bee is the unsung hero of the insect world!
