Dear Parent or Guardian/ Estimado Padre o Guardian:
Next week we will begin giving your child state-required tests on Tuesday, March 4 through Friday, March 14. Students in grades 3rd through 6th will participate in taking the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) program. The ISAT is being given to all eligible, public school students. The results of these state tests will be reported to you on the School Report Card by the Fall 2014.
You can help your child do his or her best on the test by:
1. Making sure, if possible, that you child attends school and is on time on the days of testing;
2. Making sure your child gets a good night’s sleep the nights before testing;
3. Making sure that your child eats breakfast on the mornings of testing;
4. Reminding your child to ask the teacher questions if he or she does not understand the test directions;
5. Letting your child know that you have confidence in his or her ability to do his or her best; and
6. Advising your child not to worry about the test-just do the best he or she can.
Please contact your child’s teacher or the school principal, if you have any further questions about these tests.
The mission of John Barry Elementary school is to view each child holistically; embracing and nurturing each child's cultural experience in order to provide every student with the necessary skills for academic success through active engagement .
Every child, in every classroom will be provided with an array of academic opportunities through a literacy-rich curriculum infused in technology and tailored to provide differentiation. Through modeling, Barry School will challenge every student to think critically by promoting higher order thinking skills, being reflective, and taking ownership of their learning experience.
