Tips from Mr. Harrison:

“Words of encouragement to your child are especially helpful before the assessments and on the day of it. Please make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep prior to each test, a healthy breakfast on the morning of each test, and that he or she arrives to school on time. Bringing a water bottle from home is also recommended.”
