Students in grades 4 and 7 will be tested in reading, mathematics, and science. Students in grades 3, 5, 6, and 8 will be tested in reading and mathematics. The tests are a part of the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) program, and are being given to all eligible students. The results of reading, mathematics, and science state tests will be reported to you on the School Report Card in the fall. We will review state test results along with other information to help us improve our school program. In addition, you will receive information about your child’s performance on the state tests he or she took. You can help your child do his or her best on the test by: 1. 2. 3. 4.

Making sure, if possible, that your child attends school on the days of testing Making sure your child gets a good night’s sleep the evening prior to testing Providing breakfast on the mornings of testing 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 6. Advising your child not to worry about the test, but just to do his or her best We look forward to sharing the ISAT results with you this fall. Sincerely,

Matt Melamed
