From Principal Mary Garcia
STAAR Testing begins April 1, 2014. 7th graders will take the STAAR Writing and 8th STAAR Math. Tips for the tester -
1. Keep a positive attitude throughout the whole test and try to stay relaxed. If you start to feel nervous take a few deep breaths to relax.
2. Do the easiest problems first. Don't stay on a problem that you are stuck on, especially when time is a factor.
3. Pace yourself, don't rush . Read the entire question and pay attention to the details.
4. Don't worry if others finish before you. Focus on the test in front of you.
5. Double check everything!!
