MC2 STEM High School Student and Parent Weekly Notes: 04/16/2018

April 15, 2018

MC2 STEM High School

Student and Parent Weekly Notes: 04/16/2018

 

OUR MISSION:  INNOVATING EDUCATION TO ENGAGE & ENRICH STUDENTS

 

“The most wasted day of all is that on which we have not laughed.”

-Nicolas Chamfort

 

 

MC2 STEM High School Communication

Testing, Testing, 1..2…3…

All parents want to see their student(s) perform well in school. Parents play an important part in helping their children give their best performance on a test. The ideas presented below may serve as a guideline for parents when helping their student(s) prepare for testing.

During the weeks leading up to the TEST begin to talk with your student about the importance of giving their best effort during testing. The following thoughts will help you in preparing your child for being ready to give the test his or her all.

The night before:

  • Help your child get to bed on time. Research shows that being well-rested helps students do better.

  • Help children resolve immediate arguments before going to bed.

  • Keep your routine as normal as possible. Upsetting natural routines may make children feel insecure.

  • Mention the test to show you’re interested, but don’t dwell on it.

  • Plan ahead to avoid conflicts on the morning of the test.

The morning of the test:

  • Get up early to avoid rushing. Be sure to have your child at school on time.

  • Have your child eat a good breakfast but not a heavy one. Research shows that students do better if they have breakfast before they take tests.

  • Have your child dress in something comfortable.

  • Be positive about the test. Acknowledge that tests can be hard and that they’re designed so that no one will know all of the answers. Explain that doing your best is what counts. The important thing is to make your child comfortable and confident about the test.

 After the test:

  • Talk to your child about his or her feelings about the test, making sure you acknowledge the effort such a task requires.

  • Discuss what was easy and what was hard; discuss what your child learned from the test.

  • Discuss what changes your child would make if he or she were to retake the test.

  • Explain that performance on a test is not a condition for you to love your child. You love your child just for the person he or she is.

 

Testing Schedule Changes

There are MANY schedule changes during testing. Please pay close attention to the notes for these details. A flyer with the general test schedule changes is attached to this email, and a specific letter regarding your child’s test schedule will be sent home with them on Monday.
