Dear Parents,

The Kindergarten children will be taking the Stanford Achievement Test this week (April 24-28). Here are a few pointers that will help make the testing experience a positive one for your child:


  1. Please come to school on time. It is very difficult to make up missed tests. Make every effort to be at school every day. 
  2. Adhere to your normal routine. This will help to control your child’s stress level. 
  3. Make sure that your child eats breakfast. 
  4. Talk about the test so that there is no mystery surrounding the event. 

While the kindergarten students are testing, our younger children will enjoy extended outdoor activities (free play, structured games, reading groups, and other activities). Please apply sunscreen and insect repellent before sending your child to school this week, even if you normally do not.  

Spirit Week is coming up next week, May 1-5, culminating in Field Day on May 5, and the Mayfest picnic on Saturday, May 6. Please let us know if you did not get the information in last week’s Monday folders.

We will continue to study the solar system, phases of the moon, and constellations, and have also begun to study the continents of North and South America.

Have a great week!
