Miller County Elementary School students are ready for the CRCT! Their teachers have worked hard to prepare them for the test. The CRCT will begin on April 19. Students in grades 3-5 will test Tuesday, April 19- Monday, April 25 in the areas of reading, English/Language Arts, mathematics, science, and social studies.

It is extremely important that the students are present during all days of testing. Students also need to arrive to school on time. No one will be allowed to come into the classrooms after testing has begun.

Parents, here are things you can do to help your children be as successful as possible on the CRCT.

1. Make sure your children get a good night's sleep each night before testing.

2. Provide a healthy breakfast, even if they would prefer a brown sugar cinnamon Pop-tart.

3. Get them to school on time. When they are late or rush in at the last minute, it is hard to get calm and focused for testing.

4. Help your children stay relaxed. Some students suffer from test anxiety but feel reassured when we stay calm and tell them we have faith in them and that we know they will do their best.
