    It’s A Great Day to be a Cardinal!


         Spring has sprung!  At CMS we are excited about the upcoming events that occur at the end of the year, and we are preparing to focus on our state tests as well.  On Monday, April 16th, our students will begin MAP testing, and will continue testing through April 25th.  Teachers and students have been preparing for tests, and they are ready! It is natural for some student s to feel stress about taking these tests, here are some strategies to help relieve some of your student’s test taking anxiety and help best prepare them for the day of testing:

      • Get enough sleep the night before the test.  Most teens need between 8-10 hours of sleep a night.
      • Listen closely to any instructions the teacher gives you.
      • Read the test and each question thoroughly.
      • Focus on answering each question individually.  Skip questions that might give you trouble and come back to it later.
      • Finished already? Check your answers before submitting your test and add details that you may not have thought of the first time through.
      • Relax-you got this!
      • Get enough sleep the night before the test.  Most teens need between 8-10 hours of sleep a night.
      • Eat a good breakfast. On test taking days, students will be provided with free breakfast by Clinton Food Service.

    During the testing window, students will only test 2-3 days.  It is important for them to be in attendance on their days of testing.

    • April 16-17 6th grade ELA and Math
    • April 18-19 7th grade ELA and Math
    • April 23-25 8th grade ELA, Math, and Science

         In addition to testing, we have several exciting events planned for the end of the year.   On Friday, May 18th the students will participate in an all school Field Day at Cardinal Stadium and Cardinal Star Day.  We are looking forward to any parents that would like to volunteer to help with Cardinal Star Day, please contact the school office if you are interested.  On Monday, May 21st, we will celebrate student accomplishments with an Awards Assembly and Talent Show in the morning at the CHS Performing Arts Center.  Students will receive information regarding try-outs for the talent show from Mrs. Wyatt at the end of April. Eighth grade promotion will be held in Cardinal Stadium on Tuesday, May 22nd at 10:00am.  All students will participate, as 8th grade students will be recognized for their achievements and promoted to high school.   CMS staff is looking forward to celebrating our student’s achievements, until then we remain focused on the important work in our classrooms.
