The TAKS Math tests are quickly approaching and the intermediate grade levels are honing their math skills. If you are wondering what you can do to help your child at home, you might want to visit these sites to view some of the tasks our students will be expected to perform. We will continue to work at school and appreciate all that you can do at home as well. No child can be fully educated without teamwork between school and home. Communication, cooperation, and collaboration are key ingredients.
I hope that these sites help. Click on the grade level below:
This Tuesday our fourth graders will have the chance to show off their writing skills to the state of Texas. We know they are up to the TEST! Let’s show our support for their day by following the district and state guidelines set forth.
Please observe that there will be No Visitors allowed on campus this Tuesday and Outside Food may not be brought in on a testing day. This is not just for our fourth graders, but for all of our students on a TAKS testing day. Each intermediate grade level will have a day of their own this year. In fact, they will have a few of them. It is wonderful to live in a community where we all support each other.
Good Luck, Fourth Grade!
Ready, Set, Write! That is what will take place on Tuesday, March 1st. Our 4th Grade will be taking the TAKS Writing test. This is an important day for these 9 and 10 year olds, and we need to show them that we are in full support of their efforts.
Please remember that because of test security, there will be NO VISITORS allowed in the building for any of the intermediate grades – 3rd, 4th, or 5th. Also, all intermediate students need to plan to either eat in the cafeteria or bring a lunch from home that morning as NO FOOD may be brought in from outside on TAKS testing dates.
Our students and teachers are the best, and we cannot wait for the scores to show just that.
Good Luck, 4th Grade!
I have just finished updating my website with testing dates and thought that there may be those interested in making note of them. They are linked below:
On November 15th, the TAKS Alternative assessment tool becomes available to administrators, and the TAKS Alt assessment window will be January 3rd through April 15
Congratulations to Primary and Intermediate campuses for earning the highest state rating of Exemplary again this year. While primary students do not take state tests, the teachers work hard to prepare students with prerequisite skills necessary to master state objectives. Our intermediate teachers continue to get students ready for the task of passing state assessments specifically designed for each grade level. Student performances show that the students at White Oak Elementary are mastering the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills as outlined by the TEA. We are very proud of their TAKS results!
