End of Year Testing

Dear First Grade Families,

Hard to believe that we are close to the end of the school year!  We wanted to share some important dates with you so that you can support your child for the end of year testing.  It will be very important that students are well-rested and have breakfast!

Beginning April 22nd and continuing through May 17th- Local Measures READING

(Students are tested one at at time by the teacher.  They read a 1st grade passage and are scored on accuracy, fluency and comprehension.)

April 24th & 25th- Dual Immersion students will be tested on WRITING in Spanish

(Students will be given a prompt and various resources that relate to the prompt.  They will take notes and then compose an entire piece without teacher support.  We do not know yet what the writing type will be, but we do know that it will either be Narrative, Informative, or Opinion.)

May 1st & 2nd- All first grade classes will be tested on WRITING in English

(Students will be given a prompt and various resources that relate to the prompt.  They will take notes and then compose an entire piece without teacher support.  We do not know yet what the writing type will be, but we do know that it will either be Narrative, Informative, or Opinion.)
