Dear Parents of Grade 3, 4 & 5 Students:

This is to remind you that your child will be taking the following NYS tests:

        NYS ELA Reading Test

Grade 3, 4 & 5 - Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday – April 1st, 2nd, & 3rd.


Please note the following:


  • Students must come to school on time (8:00 am).  Latecomers will not

be allowed into the classrooms.

  • Your child must take all parts of the tests. Please make sure he/she comes

to school all days.

  • Please make sure that your child gets a good night’s sleep and eats a nourishing breakfast.
  • Have your child bring two #2 pencils.

Our teachers have provided your children with strategies to become better readers, writers and test takers.  We are confident that our children will do well on these assessments.  Thank you for your continued support and cooperation.
