This will be the first year that your child will be taking the ITBS (Iowa Test of Basic Skills) standardized test. We will be testing from February 1-4 for an hour each day. This test is VERY important! The following is a list of ideas that I have discussed with the kids to give them the best attitude, energy and brain power to succeed on the ITBS.
1) Eat a healthy breakfast.
2) Get to school on time, everyday (unless you are sick).
3) Come to school with a positive attitude.
4) Do your very best!
5) Avoid scheduling appointments between 10:30 – 11:30. This is our testing time.
Please make bedtime a priority during ITBS week! My suggestion for bedtime would be between 8:00 and 8:30pm.
Thank you for helping your child to be successful!!
