The School Testing Letter I’d Like to See
As you know, standardized testing is coming up next week. We here at Rydell High are so proud of what our students learn and accomplish every day, and we want to ensure that these tests (as ridiculous as they may seem) accurately reflect what we know the young men and women of Rydell are capable of.
You can help us!
a) Tell your child not to worry about these tests. This is very important. We don’t want test anxiety to skew the results. Stressed children do not test well. Remind your child that s/he has all the tools s/he needs to do well, and that the goal is “not to be the best but to do your best.”
b) Make sure your children get a good night’s sleep, which should be easy if they know that the tests are nothing to worry about.
c) Feed your child a good breakfast–preferably a high-protein meal, but let’s be real, whatever you can get them to eat is a win.
We are so thankful that you have entrusted the education of your child to us. We expect great things from our students, and we know that the adults in their lives are key to their success in school and in life. Thank you for partnering with us in making sure your child has a positive, enriching and empowering educational experience.
