Rejoice in the Resurrection
Happy Easter to all of our families!
New York State Exams
Students in grades 4, 6 and 8 will take the NYS exams in ELA in April. Please make sure your child gets
plenty of rest, eats a healthy breakfast, and arrives to school on time ready to do their best.
Tips for helping your child manage test anxiety.  Make sure your child attends school regularly so that they are exposed to all schoolwork that
will be covered.  Doing well on an exam is easier if a student has been consistently completing school
assignments and homework.  Create and maintain a routine at home that will help your child be well rested.  Talk and encourage your child to do their best.  Help you child develop a positive attitude towards test taking- a “can do” attitude.
