We will begin Aspire Testing in April.  We will not have visitors for lunch for the month of April and possibly the first week in May.  We also ask that you limit check ins and check outs during this time.  Here is why:  Every class does not test every day.  Unforeseen things always happen, the site goes down or is unavailable, a child gets sick, the power goes out, etc., etc.  It is possible that we may need to adjust our schedules as far as lunch and specials in order to accommodate a testing class.  Testing conditions need to be as quiet as possible without any interruptions during the testing time frame.  We are usually testing in several areas at once.  Students are taken to the restroom before testing begins.  Once testing begins, no one is allowed in or out of the classroom as not to disrupt anyone's test.  If a student checks ins  and their class is testing, then they must be put on the make up schedule.  Most test last an average of 45 minutes to one hour.  If there are any interruptions during testing, the test is scrapped and the entire class has to start all over.  

How to make sure you give your child every advantage during testing:

  • Make sure they go to bed at a reasonable time, allowing them 8-10 hours of uninterrupted sleep.
  • Make sure they get a nutritious breakfast each morning.  (Remember the Cougar Cub Cafe' offers breakfast each morning)
  • If your child is not a big breakfast eater; try to get them to at least have some juice or milk.  Anything on their stomach is better than nothing.
  • Make sure your child gets up on time so they are not frazzled when they get here.
  • Don't put too much stress on your student about testing.  They will test better if they are relaxed.
