Somers Point Schools News:
NJ ASK 2014

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your children the best of luck on the upcoming NJ Assessment of Skills and Knowledge. State testing of students in grades three through eight will take place in the next few weeks. Students brought home a “Parent, Student, and Teacher Information Guide” created by the NJ Department of Education. This guide will give you more information about the test and some sample questions. Look over the guide with your child to better familiarize yourself and your child with the test and its format.

Click on the links below to download a copy of these guides.

     There are also some things that you can do at home to help your child prepare for the test:

 ü Check the dates of the test and do not schedule vacations or appointments during testing.

ü Your child should have his/her regular amount of sleep.
ü Make sure your child eats a good breakfast each morning.

ü Tell your child to dress in layers so that he/she is comfortable while taking the test.
ü Encourage your child to read and listen carefully to all test-taking directions.
ü Make sure you are aware of your child’s test performance and that you can help interpret the      results when they are available.
ü Encourage your child to do his/her best.

We ask your help in assuring that each and every one of our students has the opportunity to be successful and demonstrate their true proficiencies. Thank you for your continued support.
