Spring Testing is Here!
April 26 through May 13
For grades 3, 4, 5, and 6, the Hawaii State / Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA) will begin at the end of April. Parent Information Booklets will be sent home shortly before testing starts.
The SBA consists of FOUR online tests, two English Language Arts and two Math.
It’s important that all students are present at school for ALL FOUR parts.
How can you help your child during testing time? Here are some ideas:
- Make sure your child gets plenty of sleep – try for 8 hours – the night before.
- Also make sure your child eats a good breakfast the morning of the test. Avoid sweet and sugary foods.
- Please come to school on time. We want to have a nice calm start the morning of the test!
- Encourage your child to do his or her very best! .. Persist! Keep trying!
If you have any questions regarding testing, please contact our school counselors Laura Willcox or Tyron Kitashima.
