Haigh Elementary School

Attendance During M-STEP Testing

Afternoon Haigh Community,

   Today marks the first day of our students taking the state test. If you are not familiar, the state test is now called the M-STEP test and no longer called the MEAP. The M-STEP measures our 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade students in the areas of English Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Depending on the grade, students may not test in all those areas. During testing, it is important to have our students arrive on time and be able to start during the morning session. Evidence shows that testing during the morning is the best time for our students to be assessed, where their energy level, alertness, and appetite allow for the optimum performance. Most test sessions will be taking place in the morning between 9:ooam and 11:00am. Parents and or Guardians please we appreciate your help and support during our state testing,

Thank you for your time,

Mr. Short
