STAAR Testing for 4th and 5th Grade Students

STAAR Testing for this academic year has arrived at Hatchett Elementary! Next week we will have our initial round of STAAR testing for all 4th and 5th Grade students.

4th Grade students will undergo two days of testing on writing. The test will focus on revision, editing, and composition writing. 5th Grade students will take tests on reading and mathematics - one subject each day.

Testing will be administered to students on Tuesday, 1 April 2014 and Wednesday, 2 April 2014. We ask that you ensure your child is in bed early the nights before testing. We ask that students get plenty of rest, a good breakfast the morning of testing, and that they arrive to school on time.

To create the optimal STAAR testing environment for our students, we are asking that all visitors in all grade levels refrain from coming to campus between 8:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on either of the testing dates mentioned above.

Thank you for your understanding. We truly appreciate your support in ensuring that students perform their best during this testing period.
