Testing "season" can be a stressful time for both parents and students.  Here are some helpful tips to make it easier for everyone.

COMMUNICATE - Ask your student what they are working on in class.  Inquire as to whether or not they are struggling with any of the concepts or having any trouble in general while in school.  If you have concerns, make a point to have a conversation with your child's teacher as soon as possible.

ATTENDANCE - It's crucial that your child doesn't miss too much school.  Learning is much easier if they are in school consistently.

HEALTH - Of course you pay attention to your child's health, but remember that getting a good night's sleep and eating a healthy breakfast gives your child that extra boost they need to concentrate on their test.

KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT
- Knowing what to expect and what is expected of your student is helpful  so that you can discuss the test and make your child feel more confident and relaxed.  If you have questions, never hesitate to contact your child's teacher.

Of course being supportive and encouraging goes without saying, and reminding your student to do their best is a great way to start their testing experience.

Thank your for your support!
