Dear Parents,

 

We are fast approaching the end of the year.  Students and faculty here at Milford Elementary School have been preparing for academic success.  The State requires us to take a summative assessment called the SAGE Assessment.  This assessment affects students in grades 3 through 6.  This test will determine mastery of essential core curriculum concepts that students have been learning throughout this school year.  There is a new school grading system called UCAS that the state has adopted which hinges much of our score rating on how well students do on these tests.  We know many of our students are excelling in school and grades reflect that they are; however, some of our students have a hard time showing what they know on these tests due to many variables.  Fatigue, hunger, lack of motivation, attendance, and being just overwhelmed or nervous are just a few of the challenges that students may face during this assessment time.  We would like to make this testing time as positive and successful as possible.  Here are some ideas to support success at school and how you can help on the home front.

 

Ways to help at home:

 

  1. Attendance is critical.  The SAGE assessment includes math, language arts, and science.  Dates are as follows:

            6th Grade: Language Arts- 4/27, 4/29 Science- 5/5, 5/7 Math- 5/11, 5/13

            5th Grade:  Language Arts-4/27, 4/29 Science- 5/5, 5/7 Math- 5/11, 5/13

            4th Grade: Language Arts- 4/28, 4/30 Science- 5/4, 5/6 Math- 5/12, 5/14

            3rd Grade: Language Arts- 4/28, 4/30 Science- None       Math-5/12, 5/14

  1. Please make sure your students are here at school during our testing dates.  The math, language arts, and science assessments are April 27th-May 14th.
  2. Students will need to have a good night’s rest before coming to school.  
  3. Students will need to eat a good healthy hearty breakfast before school. 
  4. Talk with your child/children about doing their best and why doing their best will make a difference for them and our school.

 

Ways we will help at school:

 

  1. We have designed an incentive plan at school where students can earn tickets for prizes.  They can earn tickets for attendance on test days and bonus points for attending all SAGE assessment days.  They earn tickets for using all the time effectively during their testing sessions, showing all their work as they solve problems in math, and by their preliminary score if they reached benchmark levels.  All tickets will be used in school and grade level drawings to earn various prizes.  The grade level with the most ticket percentage will have a swim party at the Milford City Swimming Pool.  Individual prices will consist of a variety of passes and treats.  This will take place at a special awards assembly after SAGE testing has been completed.
  2. We will provide healthy snacks each day before testing.
  3. Having classroom discussions on the importance of doing ‘your best’ and how it will make a difference for them and our school.
