Testing season is here and all Frost students will do their best to score the highest on their test!
Last week, on Tuesday, we invested all day with assemblies to make sure all students have a clear idea about what this test is, the different testing activities, and some tips to make sure you are well prepared by the time you sit in front of the computer to answer your online questions.
A reminder to all students about the importance to do well, considering that your scores will be sent directly to your parents, and the school will use them to determine placement and programming of classes for next year. For 8th grade students, please remember that your high schools will receive your scores as well and they may use them when preparing your high school class schedule.
I know all students will do their best and thank you in advance for taking all parts of the test seriously. Today, we start with 8th grade English Language Arts. I need to remind students that there are several parts of the test and it will take several days. Do not get distracted, all parts are equally important, including the classroom activity you will start working on today.
Here at Frost, we celebrate all students who do well on the test in many ways. Today, during this time, I am asking all homeroom teachers to please distribute the certificates you received in your mailboxes for your students. Every certificate represents a test that your students did very well on. Some students will receive a certificate for ELA, some for Math, and most for both! I congratulate all students who are receiving certificates today and encourage everyone to work hard to win your certificates next year.
At this time, I want for all homeroom teachers to stop any other activities you may have going on and take a minute to distribute the certificates and celebrate with all receiving students. At the same time, please encourage any student who may have not received a certificate to try their best to earn one for next year.
Congratulations all students receiving certificates today. Please share with your parents as we will let them know how proud we are of you and your accomplishments.
