Dear Parents,

Assalamu alaikum.  Please remember, your child will be taking the Iowa Test of  Basic Skills  (ITBS) pretest the week of Monday, August 25 from 8:30 a.m. till about 11:00 a.m.

The ITBS assesses where each child is performing academically. We use the data to help guide our instruction. It also highlights the strengths and weaknesses of a child’s learning level to help us monitor growth.

How can you help?

·      Have your child in bed early every night.

·      Make sure your child has a good breakfast. Protein/healthy based meals are preferable. Good choices would be: peanut butter, eggs, nuts, blueberries or bananas.

·      Make sure your child gets to school on time and does not miss school this week.

·      Share with your child the importance of trying his/her best on the test. Be sure your child does not feel pressured or overwhelmed. The ITBS is one form of assessment and your child will have many opportunities to exhibit mastery on other performance assessments.

·      Send a bottle of water with your child.

·      Reinforce having a good attitude.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact administration.
