    As in years past, Maine will be administering Mathematics and English Language Arts tests for students in grade 3 through 8.
    The MEA (Maine Educational Assessment) testing window for students extends from March 18 through April 12. We encourage students to try their hardest and do their best, while recognizing that any assessment is an in-­the-­moment snapshot and not the final word on a child’s understanding or skill.
    Certainly a good night’s sleep and healthy breakfast will go a long way toward minimizing test anxiety and we appreciate your support in this regard.
    Beals Elementary School will begin administering MEA tests beginning the week of March 18th. Students in grades 5-8 will be testing using the following schedule. Grades 3 and 4 will be tested on a schedule set up by Mrs. CK that best meets the needs of her self contained classroom.
    We ask that parents have their children to school on time and that they have a good nights rest on nights before testing days. The school does not usually receive the test results back from the state until the summer or fall.. Individual results will be shared with parents for their children in the fall. Please contact the school with any questions.
