Attention 6th Grade Parents
Is your student ready for 7th grade? A whooping cough booster shot (Tdap) is now required before starting 7th grade. Don’t wait until the last minute. Make an appointment with your doctor now and beat the rush. Proof of immunization must be received by the school office before the first day of school or your student will not be given their class schedule. If you have any questions please contact our school nurse, Maya Missakian, at 431-3582 or email@example.com.
Testing time is here and we all know how stressful it can be on students. In addition to getting enough sleep and eating a healthy breakfast, here are a few tips to help them get through it smoothly!
Wake up early enough: Wake up your student early enough to avoid rushing. Set a back-up alarm if needed.
Make room for downtime: Try to allow your student to have time to relax, breathe and do something fun. It's important to balance testing with some free time.
Testing isn't everything: Remind your student that they are more than a test score. Testing is important but shouldn't determine how they feel about themselves. Ask them how they felt about the test and show your unconditional support.
As always, please contact me with any questions/concerns regarding your student at firstname.lastname@example.org or 431.3410. Thank you!
