This week, we have started a new morning routine in order to help prepare the Grade 6's for PAT's. From 8:30-9:00, Mr. Vanderlinden is taking the Grade 5's to work on leadership activities while the Grade 6's stay with Mr. Stanley to look at past PAT's and discuss strategies and review previously learned topics. As a reminder to parents, the CBE's PAT schedule is listed below:
June 14th: Science
June 15th: ELA Part B (we wrote Part A in May)
June 18th: Math Part A & B
June 19th: Social Studies
All PAT's begin promptly at 9:00 AM and go until 10:00 with the exception of math which goes until 10:15 AM. Student's have an additional 30 minutes to complete the test if they require.
At-home practice and review would be beneficial at this point. Quest A+ has released PAT's that students can access and practice on digitally. Additionally, we will be doing practice PAT's in class on the following dates:
June 7th: Science
June 11th: ELA
June 12th: Math
June 13th: Science
Please do your best to ensure that your Grade 6 student is present and on-time for all of the above dates. We want our boys to feel comfortable and confident heading into what can be a very stressful time of the year for them.
