PEAKS Testing

All 3rd, 4th and 5th graders will be taking the State of Alaska’s annual assessment. This year our test has been designed from a new company and is called the PEAKS Test. Testing will take place on April 4th and 5th. All students in grades 3, 4, and 5 will take a language arts and math assessment and the 4th graders will also take the Science test. This year the test will be a paper test instead of a computer based one. This should reduce the number of technical issues that greatly affected the testing last year. To help your child do his or her best on this test please encourage them and even though the sunshine is out more and more please make sure they are getting plenty of sleep and are ready to work hard. These tests can be a stressful time for your child so please continue to recognize the positives and encourage them along the way.
