Testing starts next week! Schedule & Practice Tests


Happy Spring! As we round the corner towards the end of our school year, that means it is testing season! Our first and second graders will be taking the MAP (Measurement of Academic Progress) test and our third, fourth, and fifth graders will be taking the SBA (Smarter Balanced Assessment).   Our fifth graders will also be taking the newly developed WCAS (Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science).

These tests are just one snapshot of your child’s learning and knowledge.  Though we value the information we gather from these assessments, we know that your child is so much more than this one data point!  These tests should not create any added pressure for your child or your family, they have been working hard all school year and our teachers have been preparing them well.

We do need your help in making sure your child gets to school on-time on the days they are testing! It can cause added stress for any child who must walk in late to a testing environment.  It is also important that your child gets lots of sleep the night prior and a good breakfast in the morning.  The testing schedule is below, as well as other resources for your reference.

If you have any questions or concerns about testing, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your classroom teacher and/or myself at any time.


With love and appreciation,

Rena Deese
