Longer Days, MCAS, and Sleep Struggles

The month of May means longer days and more MCAS testing. Principal Chamberlain shared an important reminder about sleep in her recent April newsletter: 

"A reminder about the importance of sleep. With longer daylight hours, spring activities, and as a parent, the difficulty of getting kids to sleep is understood. I am including these sleep guidelines as a reminder to keep a solid schedule for sleep (and consistent bed time/wake time) as much as possible."

Testing schedule:
May 9 and 11: Grades 3 and 5 MATH
May 16 and 17: Grades 4* and 6 MATH
May 23 and 24: Grade 5 SCIENCE

*Grade 4 will be taking computer based tests per the MA Department of Education requirement
