New Counseling Class
Donut Stress the Test (Grades 3-12): Starting March 18th
In this class, we will teach students test-taking skills and strategies to cope with test anxiety and give them the confidence they need to succeed. We will help students create an action plan or steps that they can follow to complete MISSION: CAASPP Test-Taking Success. Missions will help students recognize and learn about their worries, explore the symptoms, learn about the components of the CAASPP test, and how to manage their anxiety before and during a test. We want to help students shift their testing mindset from being something scary to a mission they can feel prepared to complete successfully.
