CMAS/PARCC Testing for Grades 3-8
Beginning April 10 through April 28, students in grades 3-8 will be taking the PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) assessments in English language arts (ELA) and math. CMAS (Colorado Measures of Academic Success) science and social studies tests will also be given in April to students in grades 5 and 8 (science) and 4 and 7 (social studies). All Mountain Phoenix students will be taking the assessments on paper, rather than online.
Attendance is important on these days, as make-ups may interfere with other classes. We ask that parents avoid scheduling doctor appointments or trips on these days if possible.
Please make sure your child gets plenty of rest and eats a nutritious breakfast each day to be well prepared for the demands of testing. Sending an extra snack helps, too. Please encourage your child to do his or her best, as you would with any challenge that comes their way!
Thank you for the support of your child and our school during this time.
