Dear Families of Students in Grades 3-5,

This is just a reminder that our students in grades 3-5 will take their New York State ELA test on Tuesday, March 28th, Wednesday, March 29th, and Thursday, March 30, 2017. This is a three day test with three separate parts.

Please note the following:

• All students must arrive to school on time no later than 8:05 am. Students who arrive late will not be admitted to their classroom once we start the test.

• Cellphones are to be turned off and stored in the student’s school bag.

• Please make sure that your child gets a good night’s sleep and that they either eat a good breakfast at home or arrive to school for breakfast starting at 7:30 am.

• Children should be dressed in comfortable clothing as this is an untimed test and they will be working at their desks for a long period of time if needed.

• If your child wears glasses, please make sure that they have their glasses with them on the day of the test.

• In the event that your child is not feeling well on the day of the test, make up days have been built into the schedule.

• Kindly send your child to school with three sharpened number 2 pencils.

Our students are prepared for this test and they have been working very hard. I am so proud of each and every one of them. Each day I see amazing things in our classrooms and I know that we have the best kids in Queens at PS 206. Be their cheerleader!! Encourage them!! At the end of the day, all will be fine. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher, our parent coordinator or myself at jthomas4@schools.nyc.gov.

Sincerely yours,

Joan L. Thomas Principal
