  • Students should get plenty of sleep the night before they test
  • Talk to your child about the importance of showing what they have learned and doing their best
  • Have students arrive on time to school on their testing day
  • Ensure your child eats a healthy breakfast at home before they arrive or comes in time to eat breakfast at school
  • If your child tends to be a slow tester, it is highly recommended that they bring a sack lunch with them on their testing dates so they can eat in their classroom if they have not finished testing.
If you have any questions or concerns, please call the office at 623-412-5075.

Thank you,
Janelle Dinkgrave
