Calle Mayor State Testing 2018-2019
This year Calle Mayor will be having a modified schedule due to State Testing at SHS. Calle Mayor will be on a Block Style Schedule for some days from 20 MAY through 7 June, this will minimize any scheduling issues with those students who attend SHS. There will be LATE START TUESDAYS on 14 MAY and 4 June, but we will not have them on 21, 28 MAY. We will have an early out on TUESDAY 28 MAY, due to OPEN HOUSE. Students are encouraged to bring their own headphones to use during the test, the school will provide headphones to students who do not have or forget theirs. Students who attend SHS will continue to attend those classes during our testing schedule, during the MATH and Science testing days at Calle students who attend SHS will take their math and science test in their PE class during those days. See the schedule for subject testing days and periods.

Helpful Testing Info
Make sure your child gets a good night's sleep and eats a healthy breakfast
Many teachers report that students who don't do well on tests haven't gotten enough sleep, and haven't eaten breakfast on the morning of the test. Doing both of these things will ensure that your child is working at full capacity.
Make sure your child is prepared
Some schools may supply the tools your child needs for the test, such as pencils, an eraser, paper, and a calculator. Others may require the students to bring those materials themselves. Check with your child's teacher to see if you need to provide your child with any of these materials. Also, check to see whether you child will be able to make up the test if she is sick on test day.
Staying calm will help your child stay calm. If she gets nervous about the test or is likely to experience anxiety during the test, help her practice some relaxation techniques that she can try once she's taking the test
The CAASPP Test has a practice version that can be done online. Students can take these tests as much as they want, a link to the test can be found here: http://www.caaspp.org/practice-and-training/index.html
