Hope you all had a lovely spring break!
We will begin Milestones testing on Wednesday, and finish up next week on Tuesday. What you can do to help is to insure your child gets a good night’s sleep and has an extra hearty breakfast each testing morning. The children have to sit almost all morning, so good rest and food will keep them alert and focused in their seats. I’d love to have cheese sticks and yogurt tubes donated for a mid-test snack! It can be eaten quickly and has protein to keep the hunger pains away. I’d also love some peppermints — stimulating to the brain according to research. Encourage your child to do his or her very best, and calm any anxiety if it should appear. And be sure to be to school on time —testing begins promptly at 8 am.
There is no homework this week other than the daily reading that should always be encouraged. We’ll continue to have review activities in class and stimulating enrichment projects.
Mrs. Nastasi will be testing solar ovens with the children in 2 weeks. She is in need of 2 boxes of graham crackers and a multi-pack of Hershey’s milk chocolate bars. Leave a comment if you can donate anything. Thank you!
