121 I am so proud of what I see in and around the Intermediate School!

122 I am so proud of all of you!

123 In fact, I want everyone to know what’s happening here…

124 I want everyone to know what “MY KIDS” can do…

125 I need your help to get this wonderful message out!

126 One way you can help me get this message out is to reach your individual CMT goals!

127 Remember your individual CMT goals… Level 1→ Level 2 Level 2 → Level 3 Level 3 → Level 4 Level 4 → Level 5 Level 5 → Remain at Level 5 and improve your raw score

128 I want you to know…

129 …in the past our school has not scored very well on the CMT.

130 Our CMT scores have been below the state average.

131 This surprises me, because there is nothing below average about “MY KIDS”

132 Some people even make excuses as to why our scores are below average.

133 None of the excuses are good enough for me!

134 None of the excuses are good enough for “MY KIDS”!

135 Don’t let the excuses be good enough for you!

136 Let’s show them what we’re truly capable of…

137 Let’s reach our individual CMT goals!

138 Levels 1, 2, 3 & 4, you simply need to move to the next level!

139 Level 5’s, You need to stay at Level 5 and improve your raw score

140 If every student in our school reaches their individual CMT goal…

141 …we would post the highest CMT scores in this school in more than 10 years.

142 Could 2009 be the year that our CMT scores surprise everyone?

143 Connecticut Mastery Tests (CMT) Monday, March 2 nd - Friday, March 13th

144 8 Things That You Must Do To Reach Your CMT Goals…

145 #1 Get a good night’s sleep

146 Research says kids your age should get hours of sleep each night

147 # 2 Eat a healthy breakfast

148 Eat lots of protein (meat and eggs). Avoid eating food with lots of sugar!

149 #3 Arrive to school on time (8:05AM) You cannot test with your classmates if you are late to school

150 # 4 Believe in Yourself… Remember we all have what we need, we simply need to figure it out!

151 #5 Stay relaxed and focused during the test.

152 # 6 Read all test directions carefully

153 #7 Try your best from start to finish

154 # 8 If time permits, go back and check your work!

155 Important CMT Message

156 Cell phones and electronic devices are not permitted in the classrooms during testing!

157 Cell phones and electronic devices need to be left at home or in your locker!

158 Let’s show the state that the Intermediate School has what it takes!

159 From the bottom of my heart, I believe in each and every one of you!

160 In addition to believing in you, I believe in your teachers!

161 So, I truly believe we can improve our CMT scores… one amazing student at a time!

162 Do you believe in yourself?

163 Visualize what you will look like when you are taking the CMT!

164 Think about how great you will feel if you do your best on the CMT!

165 Think about how you will feel when your parents open up your scores in September!

166 Visualize being recognized in front of your classmates for moving up one level on the CMT!

167 CAIS has a picnic planned for September 2, All students who reach their CMT goal will be recognized at this picnic!

168 Think about how your future can be improved by having strong reading, writing, math and science skills!

169 Think about how the CMT is preparation for Middle School, High School and College.

170 Visualize how it will feel to be a part of surprising those who have made excuses!

171 Visualize being on our “winning team”!

172 So, CAIS Students…

173

174 I think it’s time for some theme music and our mascot…

175

176 Let’s show em’ just how well we can “MOVE” our CMT scores!

177 Good Luck on the CMT! Love, Ms. Youngberg
