Upcoming Week

We are on the fast track to taking our SOLs! Students are coming home tonight with details about their 9 weeks tests and areas that they need to study for the upcoming SOLs.  I hope that this is helpful as you continue to work at home! I have reminded the students how to use the website to practice at home, so ask them to show you :).  I have outlined our upcoming week – we will be busy, busy, busy polishing our skills to do our best on the test!

SOL Parent Night

Welcome parents!

Thank you for joining us for SOL Parent Night.  The Virginia Department of Education continually makes changes to the tests that we give to students each year.  The tests that have been developled for the 201-2013 school year have increased rigor as well as added technology enhanced questions. We have compiled the following resources to help you understand what your child will be doing as well as ways to help them prepare to do their best on the upcoming tests!

Click on the links below for examples of what the SOL test will look like:

These are items that the VADOE has identified as focus points for students taking the SOLs this year and helpful resources:

Now that you know what it will look like and what to study, here are some resources that can help you:

Practice for tomorrow’s test

I have found a practice test online that will be helpful for tomorrow’s test. It is  NOT EXACTLY what we have studied, but it is  close and good expericence.


Upcoming Week and homework 4/8

Welcome back from  break! I hope that everyone took advantage of the few sunny days that we had :).

We still have some 9 weeks tests to complete, and we have begun to review for the SOLs in reading and math using the data that we collected from those 9 weeks tests. 

  • I will begin sending home WEEKLY SOL REVIEW PACKETS that contain reading and math at the begining of every week.  They are due every Friday
  • It is best to break them into chunks ( a little every day) as there is a lot of work and it may be too much for one night).
  • These count as a homework grade, but more importantly, they are specifically designed to help your student get ready for the SOL.
  • I will send home Week 2 on Tuesday (we skipped week 1 and have a 9 weeks test tomorrow, so I’m sending it home a day later) and it will be due on Friday.
