Writing Field Test
The East Penn School District will be administering the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) Writing Field Test in grades 3-5. Students at Jefferson Elementary School will participate in this field test on Wednesday, February 6, 2013. This test will take approximately 1 hour to complete. The students who participate in this field test are “testing the items” for future assessment consideration. In addition, the field test will give students practice in the types of tasks that will comprise future writing assessments. Although no data or results from this field test will be returned to your child’s school or the district, it is important that all students are encouraged to do their best. Please contact your child’s building principal with any questions regarding this field test.
Jefferson kindergarten registration will be held on March 20. For complete kindergarten registration information please visit http://www.eastpennsd.org/Kindergarten/
