PARCC Testing in April

Dear Parents/Guardians:

This year we will be administering the PARCC testing during a window of time from April 4th through April 27th.  We have scheduled it so no student takes more than two tests in one day, and each grade will be completed within a two-week period.  The junior high students will take theirs the first two weeks with the 3rd– 5th the last two weeks.

Especially during these time slots we ask that parents/guardians make sure the students are well rested and ready to perform on the ever growing important state tests.  We will be speaking to the students about the testing, and why demonstrating what they have learned during the testing sessions is important to the community.  I fully expect that the children will continue to exhibit scores that reflect Tonica District #79 as one of the leaders in LaSalle County.

There will be another correspondence prior to the test dates via the Connect Ed phone system. Again, we are looking at the first two weeks for junior high and the second two for elementary; please plan appointments around those slots as all tests have to be made up and are a huge issue.  If you have any questions regarding the testing process, please feel free to call the school office.


Duane J. Schupp
