MCAS Testing……

mcas

Well, this is it, MCAS week! At NMS, we know that our students are well prepared to take this test.  They have sharpened their skills all year and are ready to rock this test! We work hard to create a calm testing environment for students. We also limit other academic demands during testing time.  Here are a few hints to prepare:

1. Have your child go to bed early the night before so that they are well rested.

2. Encourage your child to eat breakfast. Many middle school students skip breakfast. Try to give them something to take with them as they run out of the door in the morning. Or, better yet, make them their favorite breakfast.

3. If your child is nervous, reassure them that it’s nothing they haven’t done in school and just to do their best.

Mrs. Gleason and Mrs. Young will meet with all students tomorrow for a motivational pep talk! The PTSG has also graciously provided students with snacks . Thank you!
