STAAR Testing Dates

Dear GHNO Lower School Parents and Students,

Our campus will begin administering the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) to 3rd-6th grade students beginning the week of April 8th, 2024. Students will begin testing at 8 am and will have the duration of the school day to complete each test. Make-up days for students who were not present during the test will follow each testing day. 

Our campus will have restricted access during testing and make-up days. 

If you have a 3rd, 4th, 5th, or 6th-grade student and need to pull them out early, we ask that you keep them in school for the duration of the morning for testing and schedule necessary appointments later in the afternoon.  

Providing a good breakfast and arriving at school on time ensures a positive start to the testing day. When students complete their testing, they may read a book of their choosing, so please help your child remember to pack a book to read. As always, books should be from the classical cannon without reference to pop culture. 


Kind Regards,

Lower School Leadership
