Welcome to Southwood Elementary

January has been a busy month. I have been thinking about all of the wonderful after school events that both the students and staff have been working hard at in the last month. We had many students participate in the Spelling Bee, and several more gearing up for Battle of the Books, MATH Bowl, and STEAM club. This would not be possible if it weren’t for the strong support of parents and dedicated staff and students. I look forward to seeing the results of all their hard work.

Looking ahead, ISTEP and IREAD are starting at the end of the month. The tentative dates arebelow. Because the windows are so small and testing stretches throughout the day, it is important that students are in attendance. Please avoid scheduling any appointments during these days. We will continue to notify you to any updates and/or changes to schedules. Thanks for all you do. –Chris Kuhn

ISTEP+ (Grades 3-6) February 29-March 11 & April 18-May 6

IREAD3 (Grade 3) March 14-18

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.
