STAAR Administration in April

Dear Parent(s):

STAAR testing time has come. In April, 7th and 8th grade students will take the STAAR tests. Students who need English 1 and English 2 will take the STAAR EOC tests We are confident that our students are ready. Students and teachers alike have been working rigorously since the beginning of the school year to master the skills needed to be successful on the STAAR tests.

The State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR™) is a state mandated test that measures the statewide curriculum in reading at Grades 3-8; in writing at Grades 4 and 7; in mathematics at Grades 3-8; in science at Grades 5, 8; and social studies at Grades 8. Furthermore STAAR End of Course (EOC) tests are administered to students enrolled in the following High school classes: Algebra I, Biology, English I, English II, and U.S. history. All students enrolled in those courses are REQUIRED to participate in this testing.

Satisfactory performance on STAAR tests is a prerequisite to grade promotion in grades 3-8 and satisfactory performance on the STAAR EOC tests is prerequisite to a high school diploma.

The tests that will be administered in April 2018 are on the following dates.

Several things you can do to help ensure a successful testing experience is that your student arrives on time, fully rested and prepared to test. It is also important to make sure your child eats a good dinner the night before, if not a good breakfast the morning of testing. Similarly, encouraging your student to do his or her personal best can greatly improve self-confidence levels leading to better performance.

You will also find two documents regarding HSE procedures for cellular telephones/electronic devices and honor statements (High School test only). Please go over these two documents with your student to communicate their importance and why these measures are being implemented.

Thank you for all you do to help your student be as successful as possible, and for all of your contributions to Harmony School of Excellence-Austin.

I will be more than happy to assist if you have any questions.

 

Re: Administración de los exámenes de STAAR de abril.

Estimados padres de familia:

El tiempo para presentar los exámenes de STAAR ha llegado. Durante de semana de 9-13 de abril, los estudiantes de los grados  7mo y 8vo tomarán estos exámenes (STAAR). Estudiantes que necesitan Inglés I y Inglés II tomaran exámenes (STAAR EOC). Estamos seguros que todos nuestros estudiantes están listos. Los estudiantes, al igual que los maestros, han estado trabajando rigurosamente desde el principio del año escolar para dominar las habilidades necesarias para pasar exitosamente estos exámenes.

STAAR (The State Assessments of Academic Readiness por sus siglas en inglés) es un examen mandatorio. El examen de STAAR sirve para medir el plan de estudios en lectura para los grados del 3 al 8; en escritura a los grados de 4 y 7; en matemáticas a los grados del 3 al 8; en ciencias a los grados 5 y 8; y ciencias sociales en el grado 8. Además los exámenes de STAAR EOC serán administrados a los estudiantes que están inscritos en las siguientes clases de secundaria: Algebra I, Biología, Inglés I, Inglés II e Historia de los Estados Unidos de América. Todos los estudiantes inscritos en esos cursos están obligatorios a participar en esta prueba.

Rendimiento Satisfactorio en el examen de STAAR es un requisito previo para avanzar al siguiente grado escolar del 3 al 8. Rendimiento Satisfactorio en el examen STAAR EOC es un requisito previo para obtener su diploma de la escuela secundaria.

Los exámenes que serán administrados de abril del 2018 son los siguientes:

Exámenes de abril:

Varias cosas pueden hacer para ayudar a los estudiantes a tener una experiencia exitosa durante sus exámenes, como: llegar a tiempo, descansar lo suficiente y prepararse muy bien para el examen. Es muy importante que el estudiante tenga una cena nutritiva la noche anterior y un desayuno nutritivo la mañana del examen. Igualmente estimule al estudiante a hacer lo mejor posible para así ayudarle a subir su autoestima y así tendrá un mejor rendimiento durante el examen.

También encontrará dos documentos de las reglas de HSE sobre el uso de teléfonos celulares y aparatos electrónicos y sobre la declaración de honor (exámenes de la escuela secundaria solamente). Favor de revisar estos importantes documentos con el estudiante y explicarle la importancia de estos y por qué se deben de seguir estas reglas.

Muchas gracias por su ayuda para que los estudiantes sean exitosos y por todas sus contribuciones hacia Harmony School of Excellence-Austin.

Estaré a su disposición para cualquier pregunta que ustedes tengan.

Agil Sharifov, Director de la Escuela
