BES PARCC End-of-Year Testing

posted Apr 30, 2015, 6:35 AM by Melissa Ohlendorf

PARCC End-of-Year testing begins at BES on Monday, May 11, and continues through Friday, May 15 for grades 3-5. Students need to arrive at school on-time...and well-rested with a good breakfast!  Except for true emergencies, we will not interrupt classes during testing to share messages with your child.  Please take care of after school plans and transportation in the morning prior to coming to school.  Please avoid appointments and other interruptions, as well.

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.
