* get the kids to bed earlier than normal (with daylight savings)
* give them a good breakfast
* let them bring their slippers to school – 4th grader got new Shrek & Donkey ones (it supposedly helps to relax them)
* provide snacks for their class because their lunch schedule will be messed up
Grade 3, 6, 7 & 9 takes the ileap, which is not as crucial. And grades 4 & 8 take the Leap test. Needless to say, I have been briefed by my 4th grader about all his special demands necessary for the testing. He is very nervous and we know he will do just fine. But they are all excited because they won’t have homework this week!
