Dear Crutcho Parents:
Our students will begin state testing on April 1, 2019 for grades 3rd through 8th. It is very important that our students arrive to school on time and well rested. Late students cannot be admitted to class once testing begins.
Please schedule appointments accordingly as we will not be able to accommodate student checkouts as per state law while a class is testing.
The following tips can help your student succeed on testing day.
- Ensure your child eats a good breakfast – Studies show that children perform better at school when they aren’t hungry. Crutcho offers breakfast for all students.
- Help your child get enough sleep – Your child will need to have a good night’s rest to perform well on the test. Children ages 7 to 12 need 10 to 12 hours of sleep a night, while children ages 12 to 18 need 8 to 9 hours. Make sure bedtime the night before the test is early enough to provide enough sleep.
- Prepare the night before – Lay out clothes and school supplies the night before the test to create a smooth morning routine. It’s important for your child to feel calm and organized as they prepare for a test.
