HOW YOU CAN HELP:
  • Make sure your student gets plenty of rest during testing periods.
  • Make sure your student eats a healthy breakfast (either at home or at school, where all of our students have free breakfast available).
  • Encourage your student to do the best that they can, and to work with their teacher every day to improve. 
  • If you feel your student is feeling extreme testing stress or anxiety, please reach out to your student's teacher, principal, and/or social worker.
