3rd Grade Ohio State ELA AIR Testing Dates - 10/25 & 10/26

Buckeye Families,

All 3rd grade students will be taking the Ohio State ELA AIR tests during their English/Language Arts block on:

  • Wednesday, October 25th (Part I, 90 Minutes)
  • Thursday, October 26th (Part II, 90 Minutes)

State achievement tests, such as the 3rd Grade ELA AIR test, tell us how well our students are growing in the knowledge and skills outlined in Ohio’s Learning Standards. These tests help guide and strengthen future teaching so we can be sure that we are preparing our students for long-term success in school, college, careers and life.

A few reminders for test success:

  • Please make sure your child is well rested and gets a good night of sleep prior to the test.
  • See that your child eats a healthy breakfast.
  • See that your child arrives at school on time and is relaxed.
  • Encourage your child to do the best work possible.
  • Do not send your child to school if illness is apparent.
  • Do not remove your child from school on test days for appointments.

Please do not hesitate to call the school with any questions or concerns - 440-352-2191.

Thank you,

Cassie Smolen, Principal
