Dear Guardians/Parents & Friends for those who have students in the third grade,

Your child will be taking the Ohio Department of Education’s Third Grade Guarantee Standardized Test beginning Wednesday, October 21st through Tuesday, October 27th. This test is an in-person assessment that will not accommodate for any virtual test-taking and is administered to ALL third graders across the State of Ohio. Please be sure your child is in-person (at the 980 Lenore Ave. Campus) for the duration of the testing that takes five full consecutive school days to complete (Wednesday through Tuesday, from 7:35 AM- 2:25 PM). By working together, we can make your child’s test experience positive and successful. Please review the following suggestions that you can do to help your child succeed:

  1. Make sure your child gets a good night’s rest.
  2. Have your child eat a healthy breakfast at home or in the cafeteria at school.
  3. Make sure your child arrives at school ON TIME (7:35 AM).
  4. Gently encourage your child to do their best and pray for their ability to recall.
  5. Pray for Mrs. Lee as she is tirelessly working to ensure that your child is ready for all parts of this assessment.

Feel free to reach out with any questions concerning this process. I appreciate your reading attention and am praying for your child’s continued success here at Sonshine Christian Academy.

In the Service of the King,
