Dab On ‘Em…Test-taking Strategies

Dab On ‘Em is our SOL test-taking strategy this school year.  Students in grades 3-5 will learn the steps for Dab On ‘Em to help better their test scores!  DramaRama students will help on the morning announcements with skits, cheerleading, “Test, Test, Baby” rap and “dabbers” through the month of April and May.  SOL testing begins on May 7th & 8th in 5th grade.

D-do read the question

A-analyze it

B-box or underline key words or phrases

O-observe all answer choices

N-never answer without reading the question again

E-eliminate obvious wrong answers

M-mark the correct answer

Career Day was a success!

Career Day was a success!

Career Day was March 30th.  Students were allowed to dress up as the career they would like to have when they grow up.  They got to hear from 6 different career volunteers (who were also some of our SPES parents) speak to us in the morning from 8:00-10:30 and in the afternoon we had 2 career rotations with Tom Patton, meteorologist, from WTVR News Channel 6 and the search and rescue dogs.  It was a packed day of learning about many different careers.  Many thanks to our career parents this year who volunteered their time to speak with our students!

Below are pictures from our Career Day for you to enjoy!
