Dear Families,

STAAR Interim Testing will take place on Feb. 21 & 22 for 3rd-6th grade students and Feb. 24.  Please see the newsletter for more details:

We are kindly asking all our parents to refrain from scheduling doctor appointments during that week to prevent any conflict with students missing tests. The campus will be closed to outside visitors. All food deliveries will not be permitted, so please plan accordingly.

STAAR Interim Assessments.

The Interim Assessments are a tool that provides actionable data to help educators monitor progress and predict student performance on the STAAR summative tests.  Interim assessments are a way to monitor academic improvement, especially for students who are consistently performing below grade-level.  The Interim Assessments are delivered in an online format through the STAAR Online Testing Platform. STAAR Interim Assessments include test questions developed with Texas teachers and STAAR summative test questions from previous years. The test questions have been field tested and are fully aligned to the TEKS. The STAAR Interim Assessments use mostly multiple-choice questions and some gradable questions (in certain mathematics and science assessments only).

Prepare for Testing:

  • Get enough sleep the night before.  Don’t stress about the test. YOU GOT THIS!
  • Eat a healthy breakfast.
  • Arrive to school on time.
  • Bring a snack and a water bottle.

Thank you so much for your continued support. Please let me know if you have any questions, or ways that I can help your child succeed through this testing period.

Kind Regards.
