Dear Alma families,
Next month, Alma scholars in 3rd through 8th grade will take the state administered Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) exams in Literacy, Math, and Science. Only 5th and 8th grade scholars will take the Science exams.
We ask our families to . . .
1. Make sure your scholar is on time and in attendance everyday – missed exams must be made up, so please avoid scheduling appointments or trips that would prevent your scholar from attending school on these days.
2. Make sure your scholar is well rested each day, getting 8-10 hours of sleep the night before, and that they eat a nutritious breakfast in the morning.
3. Wish your scholar well and encourage them to do their best!

If you have any questions or concerns about the MCAS test, please feel free to contact the school.
