At Royerton, we focus on more than just the 4R's. In cooperation with parents and community, we are dedicated to providing students the opportunity to become responsible, reliable, receptive, respectful, resourceful, and ready for the future. As you read about Royerton Elementary, you will see why parents are anxious for their children to be a part of our Royerton family.
DEAR PARENTS OF 3RD THROUGH 5TH GRADE STUDENTS:
The second administration of ISTEP+ Testing will begin the week of April 27th at Royerton Elementary.
4th grade students will test on April 27th, 28th, 29th, 30th, and May 1st in the a.m.
5th grade students will test on May 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th in the a.m.
3rd grade students will test on May 8th, 11th, 12th, and 13th in the a.m.
Here are some things that we can do together to best prepare for the administration of the ISTEP.
· No homework will be assigned during the week of testing.
· The remainder of the school day will be “structured, but fun educational activities” to give students the opportunity to relax from their testing.
· Breaks will be given between sessions, giving students an opportunity to refocus their efforts for the next task at hand.
· Encourage the students to just do their best!
· It is very important that your child is at school every day during the testing. Research has shown that students do not perform as well when they are required to take the test in make-up sessions. Please make every effort to have your child in attendance during the days of testing and try to avoid scheduling any outside appointments.
· Make certain that your child gets plenty of rest before and during the testing period.
· Please try to be sure that, on testing days, your child gets a good nutritious breakfast.
· Encourage your child to just do his/her best!
· Listen to instructions carefully.
· Read closely and think about what is being asked of you.
· Relax and just do your best!
Thank you for your help and cooperation. ISTEP+ testing is something that we want our students to take seriously, but we do not want them to feel stressed about the test. We are extremely proud of RES students for giving their best every day! Please feel free to call with any questions.
Congratulations to Walker Boyle who was selected as a Terrific Kid by our local Kiwanis Chapter. Walker was honored this past Tuesday. Way to go, Walker!
