PARCC testing begins at BJHS on Monday, March 9, and at BES on Tuesday, March 10. Students need to arrive at school on-time...and well-rested with a good breakfast! 

You can help your child do his or her best on the test:

  1. Have your child attend school every day.
  2. Help your child get a good night’s sleep the night before testing.
  3. Provide breakfast on the mornings of testing.
  4. Remind your child to ask questions if they don’t understand the test directions.
  5. Let your child know that you have confidence in his or her ability to do their best.
  6. Tell your child not to worry about the test—just do the best he or she can do.
