• Dear Parents, 

    It’s that time again – California State testing is quickly approaching.   Ernie Pyle students in grades 3-6 will be testing from April 20, to April 29.

    You play an important part in helping students give their best performance on these important tests. As you know, we have been busy preparing and reinforcing the skills necessary for students to demonstrate their learning. Even though this testing period is only a snapshot—one single perspective – it is important that our students have every advantage to do their very best. We don’t want to cause test anxiety, rather we want our students to be as prepared as possible. There are many ways in which you can help your child put his/her best foot forward. The following guidelines can help set our students up for success:

    Make sure your child gets a good night’s rest.

    Have your child eat a healthy breakfast at home or in the cafeteria at school.

    Make sure your child arrives at school on time.

    Gently encourage your child to do their best.

    Thank you for helping us help your student have a PAWSitive testing experience!
