UPCOMING EVENTS! THIS THURSDAY, from 5-7 p.m., please join us at Chick Fil A on Mayo Boulevard for a dine out event benefiting next year's 20th Annual Harvest Fest! Take the meal planning off your calendar, and come on out to eat some yummy CHICKEN. Tell a friend, tell another friend, and let the folks know at the register you are with St. John so that a percentage of those sales make their way back to our school. Let's make next year's Harvest Fest ONE FOR THE BOOKS!
UPCOMING ITBS TESTING FOR GRADES 6 & 7 Dear Saint John XXIII Catholic School Parent/Guardian, From April 23 – May 3, your student will take the Iowa Assessments™ in grades 1st -7th. The purpose of this note is to inform you about the tests so that—with your support and encouragement—your student will do his or her best on the tests.
A student who is well rested and well fed and has a positive attitude about testing is best prepared for testing. You can help your student do his or her best by considering these tips: • Make sure your student gets a good night’s sleep and eats a healthy breakfast before each day of testing. • Make sure that your student is in school and on time on test days. Reschedule dentist appointments and other out-of-school time to non-testing days. • Remind your student that these tests are only one measure of what he or she has learned. Emphasize that you have confidence in his or her ability to do the best job possible. • Remind your student to listen to the directions and read each question carefully during testing. Encourage your student to ask the teacher for help if he or she does not understand the directions. • Be positive and don’t fret. Your student will likely have some nervousness about the tests, but please be sure to encourage positivity and a “can do” attitude.
