Clearing the Mind

It's NECAP week, this is a famously challenging week for students as we test for three days for two weeks at 90 minutes a session. The time is silent and independent which can be really difficult for students to muster enthusiasm for. To help alleviate some of the stress and boredom that can impact students moods we are spending time outside each morning being active, walking, running and doing team building exercises to help clear the mind and body before testing so that each student can perform at his or her best.

 We are not sending home any homework over this week or next, aside form the reading logs which are expected to be handed in and signed each Monday. Please check in with your child and make sure that these are being completed as they are a large part of their reading grade!
