Test Preparation

By: Vanessa Williams, MCES Counselor

We are approaching the end of another school term. The children have been exposed to many, many new standards. To determine how much your child has learned, he/she will be administered the Georgia Milestones Assessment beginning Monday, April 24, 2017 and ending Wednesday, April 26, 2017. Students in grades 3 and 4 will take this assessment. The test will be administered as follows: Monday, April 24 – ELA (Section 1) beginning promptly at 9:00 a.m; Tuesday, April 25 – ELA (Sections 2 and 3) beginning promptly at 8:30 a.m; Wednesday, April 26 – Math beginning promptly at 8:30 a.m.


Here are some helpful hints to make sure your child is relaxed and ready each day.

1) Make sure your child gets a good night rest each evening.

2) If they do not eat breakfast at home, encourage them to eat at school. If they eat at school, they will need to be here by 7:45 a.m.

3) Make sure they have two #2 pencils and erasers daily.

4) Unless they are running a temperature or vomiting, please send them to school each day.
