Thank you for all of your support! We appreciate the effort you make to get your children to school each day, on time and ready to learn. Your efforts do make a difference! Please click here for the latest edition of the Campus Connection. Below are a few additional items.
The talented Lakeview staff put together a terrific ISAT Pep Assembly last Friday. Highlights included cheers from our 1st and 2nd grade classes, a photo montage of staff wishing the students good luck on the test, no homework for the entire school for the week, and last but not least, the school-wide sing-along ISAT song to the tune of YMCA. Our student selected this year’s ISAT theme to be Keep Calm and Believe in Yourself.
We know the students are well prepared to do their best. Each day they show what they know to their teachers and classmates. ISATs are just another opportunity for our students to show the state of Illinois all that they have learned! Our students have done a great job so far this week. We are very proud of them.
Here are a few things you can continue to do to help each student do their very best for the rest of our testing:
- Arrive at school every day between 8:25 and 8:30 so your child won’t have a rushed start to the day. Testing starts promptly at 8:45. If your child arrives after testing begins, he/she will not be able to enter the classroom and will miss taking the first test with his/her classmates.
- Unless your child is ill, please make sure they come to school. Make-ups will be done at a later date outside the classroom. Students typically do better in the comfort of their own classroom.
- Maintain a positive and supportive attitude! We believe in your children, so let them know you believe in them, too!
A detailed letter with additional suggestions for helping your child do their best and the testing schedule for the week was sent home last week to all 3rd-6th graders. Each 3rd-6th grade classroom will be testing Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings this week. Students that receive accommodations, such as small group and extended time, started testing on Monday, March 3rd, and will continue into the week of March 10.
