Mrs. Scogin´s Sixth Grade Class
End of the Year NewsletterDear Parents,We will begin the state standardized testing in two weeks. The testing dates are: Tuesday, April 23rd, Wednesday, April 24th, and Thursday April 27th for ELA. For math we will be testing on the following dates: Tuesday, April 30th, Wednesday, May 1st, and Thursday May 2nd. All tests are scheduled to begin first thing each morning, so please be on time to school. Once testing begins, students will be in office until we finish and they will have to make up their test during make up times. If you would like to bring in a healthy snack for the class to have on one of the testing days, please message me on ClassDojo or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!This is a time when students and parents may become anxious or have concerns about testing; hopefully, I can give you some helpful tips for both you and your child as you prepare for testing. For the student, it is important for them to know that the test is given to provide them with an opportunity to show what they have learned, not to measure what they know. As a parent you can help ensure your child does his/her best by following a few guidelines. First, the night before the test, be certain your child gets plenty of rest. Second, the morning of the test, be certain your child gets a good breakfast. Last, be positive when you send your child off to school.If at all possible, please try to not be absent during the testing days. As these are the optimal testing conditions, which may not be the same should your child have to take a make-up test.In class, we have reviewed testing tips to help students keep on track and do their best. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me either before or after school.Mrs. Amy Scogin

Monthly Speaking Project: College/ InformationalEnd of the Year Dates
The end of the year is approaching quickly and I wanted to share some important dates with you. Parents, please mark the below dates on your personal calendars, so that your child, and you, do not miss out! Also, make sure to talk with your child about staying on task these last couple of weeks of school. Our sixth graders have worked hard all year long getting prepared for Royal Oak next year. The end of the year is a time to celebrate this, not a time to lose control. Let’s help them stay focused and have fun; if not, students may be eliminated from participating in one or more of the activities listed below. Thank you for your support! It has been a privilege partnering with you this year.
