There is a certain feeling in the air. You may notice a bit of excitement in our schools, a slight restlessness, an anticipation of something special about to happen.
It’s TCAP time.
Our teachers and administrators have done an incredible job preparing students for this test, and making sure students understand it’s important to do their best. Our students are incredibly committed to learning. They all know what it will take for them to read, write and do math at a proficient level, and they work very hard every day to be successful.
Parents, we ask you to make sure your children are in school on testing days. Please emphasize to your children that they need to work hard to answer every question the best they can. Tell them it’s OK to take their time and check their answers. Be positive about test taking. Be sure they get a good night’s sleep before the test. We will provide breakfast for all students on testing day.
TCAP testing is important for many reasons. It gives teachers and administrators a good idea of where your child is at in his or her learning, where more emphasis might need to be placed in the future. It helps us adjust instruction where necessary to make sure every child is reaching proficiency.
Testing will be held next week and make-ups will be scheduled throughout the month. Please help our students be successful on these tests.
Everyone here at Greeley-Evans School District 6 want your children to learn and achieve. Students, good luck on your TCAP tests. We are rooting for you!
