Starting next Monday and Tuesday(4/7-8), we will be starting the reading portion of the OAKS test. Our testing window is from 9:30-10:25 on both days, and will continue at the same time the following week on April 17th-18th. I will be encouraging students to pace themselves, reiterating the point that we have many weeks upon which to complete both tests. Slow and steady is our mantra. I hope that all our students get a great nights sleep and a good breakfast to help set us up for success. I appreciate your support at home and encourage you to take a look at all the features of the OAKS test by going to the website http://www.oaks.k12.or.us/portal/ and clicking on "Students" and then "Practice Tests" to begin. If you have any additional concerns about the testing environment, format, or schedule, please don't hesitate to contact me or share with me during our conference. Thanks, and have a great weekend!
