SOL Testing Information

Parents: Next week we begin SOL testing in 3rd through 6th grade. We are encouraging plenty of rest/sleep the night prior to testing and that the students eat a good breakfast (at home or school). Our fabulous fourth graders kick off the week with the reading test on Monday!!

We will begin testing promptly at 8:30am, please make sure students arrive to school on time. Below is a link to our complete testing calendar (complete schedule). The students have worked incredibly hard this school year and we know they will be successful. If you would like to practice with your child at home, here are some direct links to the practice sites posted by the Virginia Department of Education.

2015-16 Class Placement & Parent Input forms- Due June 1

If you have information that you would like to share, please take a few moments to answer the questions
below.  We know that a good teacher-student match and a productive mix of children are ingredients for
success, and we carefully consider each child’s strengths and needs during this process.  DO NOT request specific teachers, for this does not take into account the many variables to be considered.  It is far more valuable to share particular academic or behavioral information.

This form is available on the Providence website and it can also be completed online.  Completion of this form is optional.  It must be returned to Mr. Kraft either through email (, a hard copy may be sent to the office by June 1 or via the online form submission.  Please know that input from forms turned in over the summer are difficult to honor since the grouping process may have already started.
