Friday, April 13, 2018 Day 1

This is an important message from the KMS principals about PSSA Math testing:

PSSA Math starts this Monday, April 16, 2018! On Monday morning when you get to school, please report directly to the testing location where you took the PSSA English Language Arts.

Remember to get a good night’s sleep on Sunday night and eat breakfast on Monday morning. If you own your own graphing calculator, please remember to bring it to school with you on Monday morning and make sure it is charged or has batteries.

There are no morning announcements next week and we will begin testing promptly at 8:00am. We will test on Monday and Tuesday in the morning and have a modified schedule in the afternoon. It is very important that you arrive to school on time. You are allowed to bring healthy snacks, mints, gum, and water to your testing location. We will serve breakfast in the cafeteria on testing days.

On Monday morning, your test administrator will reread the Code of Conduct for Test Takers and the Electronic Device Letter. It is very important that you do not have a cell phone, iPod, iPad, Apple watch, etc. in the testing room.

Remember to bring a book to read after you finish your test. We are so excited to see how much you have learned this year and we know that you will show your best Kennett PRIDE and academic excellence!

Any student or staff member who purchased Phillies tickets please come to the main office to pick up your tickets now!
