Welcome to Repetto Elementary School
It’s hard to believe that we are already halfway through the school year. The window for California’s testing is right around the corner. Our students in grades 3-8 will once again take the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) test, soon after we return from spring break. The testing window is April 2nd through May 18th.
Students can prepare at home by taking online practice tests in English-Language Arts and Mathematics. This will allow students to familiarize themselves with sample questions and also utilize the various tools and support available on the site.
You can access the practice tests by visiting Repetto’s website: repettok8.net and clicking on the “Quick Links” section. Make sure to log on as “Guest”; then select the appropriate grade level and test. Students will have the opportunity to take the practice tests at school as well, but we encourage additional practice at home. The more exposure they receive, the better the students will perform on the actual test. Thank you parents, for your support and commitment to your child’s education.
