FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Good afternoon Crissman Families,

Welcome Back from Spring Break! It was so good to see the students this morning and hear about their travels and activities over our break! 

3rd, 4th, 5th  & 6th Grade Parents:  M-STEP testing starts TOMORROW for 5th grade. Please see the schedule for testing for the month of April for 5th Grade. I have also included the testing schedule for May for grades 3rd, 4th & 6th. Please help your child be successful in their testing experience by:

  • Making sure students get a good night's sleep each night before testing. 
  • Provide your child a good breakfast, or have breakfast at Crissman in the morning. Something with protein will help your child keep their energy and focus during testing. 
  • Make sure your child arrives to school on time. Students who arrive after the testing directions have been read and testing has started will NOT be allowed into their classroom until testing is completed for the day. They will need to make up the test on a make-up day.  
  • Allowing your child to remain at school throughout the testing day. If a child is pulled out of testing for an early release, they will need to finish the test on a make-up day.
