Welcome to Southwood Elementary

“March Madness” has left us and spring is on the horizon.  The reading competitions were a lot of fun and we were pleased with learning the importance of reading in our everyday lives.  Heading into the last few months of school, our goal is to “Finish Strong”. We want to finish the year like we started, with good attendance and behavior, getting our homework done, and continually striving to learn and grow each and every day. Parents, your role in this is incredibly important! Please talk with your children about finishing the year on a positive note.

Our second round of ISTEP+ testing will begin on April 25th –May 6th.  Please avoid scheduling any appointments during those days.  Our last school day will be May 19th, barring any unfortunate surprises with weather.  Please continue to look at the school’s website, facebook, or twitter page for updated or ongoing information.  Make April a great month as we strive to “Finish Strong” –Chris Kuhn

ISTEP+ (Grades 3-6) April 25th -May 6th

Preparation for testing should begin now. There are several things that parents and students can be doing right now that can help them do well on any tests. Studies have show that these things can help create a rewarding test taking experience.

·         Get plenty of rest. Eight (8) hours a night is recommended.

·         Ensure that your child eats a healthy breakfast; avoid heavy foods that may make him/her groggy and avoid high sugar foods that may make him/her hyper.

·         Let your child relax a few hours before bedtime. Avoid watching too much television, playing on the computer, and/or video games during this time. This gives the brain time to relax and think clearly.

·         Talking about the test with your child can relieve stress about test taking. Encourage them to do their best but don’t pressure them.
