Counselor's Corner: Test Preparation

By: Vanessa Williams, MCES Counselor
We are approaching the end of another school term. The children have been exposed to many, many new standards. To determine how much your child has learned, he/she will be administered the Georgia Milestones/End of Grade Assessment beginning Monday, April 30, 2018 and ending Wednesday, May 2, 2018. Students in grades 3 & 4 will take this assessment. Students in the 2nd grade will also complete an End of the Year Assessment to assess their learning for the year. The tests will be administered as follows: Monday, April 30 – ELA (Section 1) beginning promptly at 9:00 a.m,; Tuesday, May 1 – ELA (Sections 2 & 3) beginning promptly at 8:45 a.m,; Wednesday, May 2 – Math beginning promptly at 8:45 a.m. As always, please call the school if you have any questions.
Here are some helpful hints to make sure your child is relaxed and ready each day.
1) Make sure your child gets a good night rest each evening.
2) If they do not eat breakfast at home, encourage them to eat at school. If they eat at school, they will need to be here by 7:45 a.m. if they do not ride the bus, or if they miss the bus.
3) Make sure they have two #2 pencils and erasers daily.
4) Unless they are running a temperature or vomiting, please send them to school each day.
