Linden Elementary Parents,
Linden Elementary will be conducting the state assessments, STAAR test, in 4th grade Writing and 5th grade Math and Reading next week on April 10th and April 11th. Students will have 4 hours to complete the test each day. Attendance and arriving to school on time is very important on testing days.
Please encourage your student to do his/her best on these assessments. Make sure they get a good night’s sleep the night before the assessment. The school will be supplying breakfast to every student testing on these test days in order to help them focus. We will be providing the tools necessary for the students to take the assessment (pencils, colored pencils, highlighters, etc.). If your student wears glasses or needs anything else on test day please make sure he/she brings it to school with them. We would like to limit distractions during testing so we ask that you not schedule appointments or come to school to eat lunch with your student on these particular days.
Make sure that your child comes to school in a positive frame of mind. Words of encouragement from you will help your child to reduce any test anxiety they may be feeling on test day. The important thing is to make your child comfortable and confident about the test.
Thank You for your support.
Linden Elementary was awarded a $500 check from Kellie Cox Insurance Agency in Atlanta, Texas for winning the Box Tops contest. Mrs. Cox is presenting Elementary principal, Shekita Martin with the check.
