Tips to Help Your Child Prepare for State Testing
It’s that time of year again! State testing will be taking place at schools within the Tempe Elementary School District beginning on Monday, April 2.
These tests aim to measure what students have learned and whether they are on track and prepared for the next step in their education. For some students, this time of year can be stressful. Ensuring your child gets plenty of rest and eating breakfast, especially on testing days, can make a big difference.
