MAP Testing
 Every year our 3-5 graders get the opportunity to show off what they have learned with the MAP test! This year Carman Trails' window for testing is Monday April 23 - Friday May 4. All 3-5 students will take the exam. While this can be a stressful time for our students there are ways for you to help your student. To ensure the maximum uninterrupted testing time we respectfully ask that you try not to schedule any appointments during the school day during those two weeks. Other ways to help your student do their best:
  • Making sure students get a good nights sleep.
  • Eating a healthy breakfast
  • Getting to school on time, as tests generally start immediately after announcements. 
Thank you, as always, for all your support of our Carman Trails students while they take these tests.
