Make sure your child has taken any needed medication.

BEFORE THE TEST Ensure that your child is present during testing and drop off your child to school on time the day of the test. Wish your child good luck each morning of the test. Tell your child that he/she is special and that you believe in him/her! Remind your child to listen carefully to the instructions from the teacher and to read the directions and each question carefully.
