    Please ensure your child gets plenty of sleep the night before an assessment and providing them with a healthy
    breakfast the morning of an assessment. Reassure your child that the assessments give them an opportunity to
    demonstrate their learning. Our students traditionally do very well on the PSSAs and are prepared for the skills
    being assessed.
     
    If you have any questions regarding the assessment or its administration, then please do not hesitate to contact
    the grade level administrator.
