Parent Tips on How to Help Your Child Prepare for Standardized Tests:


1. 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.

2. 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.

3. Remain positive

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.

Notes from the nurse

End of the Year Notification for CHS PARENTS:

If your child has medication in the Nurse’s Office, arrangements must be made for you to pick up that medication before the end of the school year.

**Please keep in mind that no medication will be sent home with the student, unless they have a self-carry form on file.

Also, please inquire about ImmTrac at your next healthcare visit.  ImmTrac is a very useful resource and will keep record of your child's immunizations.  Adults may now use the service as well.  This is very handy especially for use in employment and college entrance and requirements.

Questions about Measles? 

        With the increasing concern over the rising number of measles cases, the question has been asked about who needs booster shots. Please refer to the following link for information from the CDC. It is a great resource for many of our questions and concerns. I hope this helps those of you with questions.
