Image result for PARCC
The state  PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers).  The PARCC test will be administered  to all 3rd and 4th grade students and aligns with the New State Standards.  Testing will be completed on the computer.  A great place to find information is www.parcconline.org.  Another site you might want to try is http://www.isbe.net/assessment/parcc.htm.
Please help your child be successful by doing the following:
1. Encourage them to try their best even when they get frustrated.
2. Let them know you believe in them.
3. Make sure they get plenty of sleep.
4. Encourage them to eat breakfast at school if they don’t eat at home.
5. Get them here on time each day.
*This is even more important due to the computer schedule.
 
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!
