Exam Reminders!

Dear High School Parents and Students,

Grades 7 – 12 will be writing semester exams (midterms)  from Monday, January 29 to Thursday, Feb. 1.  A copy of the exam schedule is attached. Note that afternoon exams denoted by a * begin at 12:30pm.

It is extremely important that students arrive early on these days in order to be prepared and are sitting in the exam room ready to begin at 9 am.  Some teachers allow students to borrow tests to use as study guides; these must be returned before the exam begins.  Some exams require the use of a calculator.  In this case, each student must have his/her own.  It is the student’s responsibility to come prepared for the exam with the materials required by the classroom teacher, e.g. pencil, ruler, paper, etc.

These exams represent major evaluations.  Students should focus intensely on preparing for exams throughout this week and over the weekend; research has proven that a good night’s sleep and a healthy breakfast promote preparedness and thought processing.

No appointments should be made for times when exams are scheduled.  Barring severe illness or extreme extenuating circumstances, students must be present at school to write exams.  If circumstances occur which are beyond parental control, Mr. Biech should be advised of the situation as soon as possible.

Students who do not have a scheduled exam in the afternoon must be picked up no later than 12:15 pm.  Students who do not have a scheduled exam in the morning should arrive by 12:15pm.

Please note, the Professional Development Day scheduled on February 2 is subject to change (as indicated on the school calendar).  If a storm forces a cancellation during the exam schedule, exams move to the next day.  For example, if there were a storm day on TuesdayTuesday’s exams would move to WednesdayWednesday’s to Thursday and Thursday’s exams to Friday and school would be in session on February 2 for all GCS students.  If there are no weather disruptions in the schedule, the professional development day will go ahead as planned and there will be no school on that date.

If you have questions regarding exam week protocols, please contact your student’s homeroom teacher.

亲爱的中学学生和家长:

7-12年级将从1月29日星期一到2月1日星期日写本学年的期中考试。附件中是一份期中考试的时间表。请注意下午的考试于12:30开始。

非常重要的一点是学生需要在这几天早到校,坐进考场并在9点准备好开始考试。有些老师同意学生接走考试作为学习指导,这些考试必须在期中考试前交还给老师。有一些考试需要用到计算器。这种情况下每个学生必须使用自己的。准备考试需要的材料,比如铅笔,尺子,纸等等是学生自己的责任。

这些考试是主要的一个评估标准。学生在本周和本周末应该集中注意在复习这些考试张;研究表示,一个良好的睡眠和一个健康的早餐可以促进准备和思考步骤。

有考试时学生不应该有其他安排预约。除了严重的疾病和极度的情有可原的情况,学生必须出席学校考试。如果发生的情况超出家长可以管理的范围,Mr.Biech校长应该被尽早通知。

下午没有考试的学生必须在12:15之前被家长接走。早上没有考试的学生应该在12:15分到达学校。

请注意,2月2日星期五学校专业发展日(PD Day)可能会有变化(如学校日历所显示)。如果在考试期间有风暴当天被取消上学,当天的考试将被移到第二天。比如星期二有风暴停学,周二的考试将会被挪动到周三,周三的考试被挪动的周四,周四的考试被挪动到周五。如果考试周没有任何天气影响,PD日则将会照常发生并且当天不上学。

如果您有任何关于考试周要求的问题,请联系您孩子的班主任。

谢谢!

THANK YOU!!!
