Dear Parent/Guardian,
    As partners in your child’s education, it is important to ensure that your child is prepared for each step along their educational journey.  One way to determine student preparedness is through assessment; therefore, we will be administering ACT Aspire tests to students on April 28–30, with make-up testing through May 13, 2015.  Your child will be taking the ACT Aspire tests on the following dates:
Writing and English tests        April 28 (Tuesday)
Reading                                 April 29 (Wednesday)
Mathematics                          April 30 (Thursday)
Science                                  May    5 (Tuesday)
    Please make sure your child gets adequate sleep and has a good breakfast on testing days to ensure a successful testing experience. 
ACT Aspire test results will provide important information regarding how your child is progressing at his/her current grade level.  Test scores will indicate which important skills, abilities, and knowledge your student has now, and which ones need to be learned for school success in the future.  Results will help your child’s teacher understand where your child is succeeding, as well as where extra help or academic focus is needed.  ACT Aspire will also provide specific suggestions for improving skills.
