April Portfolio Testing – 3/26

Dear Parents & Guardians,

This is just a reminder that next week, March 26th-28th, all third grade students will be taking the portfolio assessment. This is actually the portfolio assessment that was scheduled for April, but due to the FCAT in April, the portfolio testing dates were moved up a week.  This will allow us 2 full weeks prior to FCAT to review for the test.

The portfolio assessment is a state issued reading comprehension test, which includes the same benchmarks that were tested on the BAT and will be tested on the FCAT. This is the fourth administration of the test.

This assessment is VERY IMPORTANT and provides extremely valuable data. Please be sure your child gets enough rest the night before, eats a healthy breakfast the morning of and is in school on time especially on those days. Encourage your child to take this test seriously and use the strategies they have been practicing in class.  Thank you for your continued support!
