March Portfolio Testing

Dear Parents & Guardians,

This is just a reminder that next week, March 6th-8th, all third grade students will be taking the portfolio assessment. 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. The test will be given four separate times throughout the remainder of the year.

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!
