2.  Be sure your child gets plenty of rest the night before their SOL's.
3.  Schedule any doctor appointments on days your child does not have an SOL . 
4.  Eating a healthy breakfast on the  day your child is testing will ensure success. 

 The clinic is in need of elastic waist-banded pants in all sizes.  Be sure to launder and return any borrowed clothing items your child may have been given.  Younger children are encouraged to have a spare set of clothing in a zip lock bag.
