Middle School NY State ELA Tests March 28 – 30

Common Core¬†Parents and Students –

The New York State Common Core ELA tests will be happening this week, Tuesday, March 28- Thursday, March 30th. In preparation for the tests, here are a few things to keep in mind

  • Be on time for school! Students should get at school at 8 so they have time to eat breakfast and use the restrooms before testing. Testing begins at 8:15 am!
  • Eat a HEALTHY breakfast! Your brain is a muscle and needs food to function – so feed your brain healthy food so it’s at it’s best! This means protein, fruits and vegetables, and water! Try to avoid caffeine and junk foods
  • Get a good night’s sleep before the test! Middle school students will not be getting homework the night before the tests so they have time to take it easy.
  • No electronics! Students are encouraged to leave electronic devices at home, because they are not allowed during testing
  • Have a positive attitude! It’s goes a long way! Your teachers believe in you – so believe in yourself!

Good luck from the teachers at Bronx Latin during testing this week!
