As partners in your child’s education, it is important to ensure that they are prepared for each step along their educational journey. One way to determine student preparedness is through assessment, and therefore we will be administering ACT Aspire to your child the week of October 13th. ACT Aspire will give us important information that will allow us to determine how your child is progressing in their current grade level, as well as along their overall path toward future college and career readiness.
ACT Aspire will tell us which important skills, abilities, and knowledge your child has now, and which ones still need to be learned in order to be successful in school and in the future. ACT Aspire will help your child’s teacher understand where your child is succeeding, as well as where extra help or academic focus is needed.
Sauk Prairie High School will be switching to a block schedule on Monday, October 13th and Tuesday, October 14th to accommodate for the ACT Aspire testing. Overall school hours will remain the same but students will have 1st, 2nd, 4th, and ARP hours on October 13th and 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th hours on October 14th. Students will take the Reading, Math, and Science sections of ACT Aspire during their English, Math, and Science classes on October 13th and 14th. Students will complete the Writing and English portions of the ACT Aspire test in their Social Studies classrooms on October 16th and October 17th.
Please encourage your child to attend school and do their best on these days. Students who miss assigned ACT Aspire testing days will make up the assessments the following week. Also, be sure to encourage your child to be well rested and have a good breakfast on testing days in order to help them do their best.
