Irvington Principal Announcement

Dear Irvington Families,

Next week we will be starting the Smarted Balanced Assessment with our 3rd through 8th grade students. We intend to make this experience as stress free as possible for students and are working to minimize the impact on instruction.In order to make it as non-threatening to students as possible, we have arranged the testing schedule so no student is testing for more than one hour a day or two hours per week. Testing will continue through mid-May, and details about the testing schedule can be given to you by your student's teacher. Please help your child have an optimal experience by:
  • Keeping a positive attitude about the test. Testing results will not affect your student's grade.
  • Make sure your student is getting plenty of sleep each night.
  • Be sure your student eats a healthy breakfast.
  • Remind your child they can take their time on the test. Students have unlimited time, so there will be plenty of opportunities to go back and modify answers and/or get through the entire test.
Additional tips can be found at http://www.testtakingtips.com/parents/
 
Thank you for your support. Have a wonderful weekend,
Kathleen Ellwood
Irvington Principal
