The Aberdeen Elementary School has announced its testing dates for the Idaho Standards Achievement Tests (ISATs) this spring. They ask parents to mark their home/personal calendars for the following weeks:
• The week of April 8 – All third, fourth and fifth grade students will take the language portion of the ISAT.
• The week of April 15 – All third, fourth and fifth grade students will take the reading portion of the ISAT.
• The week of April 22 – All third, fourth and fifth grade students will take the math portion of the ISAT.
In addition to the tests scheduled, all 5th grade students will be taking the Science portion of the ISAT.
These tests will be given during the morning and early afternoon, so it is important that children be well rested, eat a nutritious breakfast at home or at school, and are at school on time each day.
School district personnel also ask parents to not schedule appointments or family vacations during these weeks of testing. Also, further limit a child’s access to video games and television during this testing period.
For additional information about the ISATs being given at the elementary school, contact Neal Cassell at 397.4115.
