Principal’s letter about upcoming state tests

As we approach Spring and the testing season, I am touching base with our elementary school families to remind you about the important upcoming testing dates.

The dates for the 2022 grades 3-5 NYS assessments are as follows:

  • Tuesday, March 29 – Thursday, March 31: ELA Assessments (Grades 3-5)
  • Tuesday, April 26 – Thursday, April 28: Math Assessments (Grades 3-5)
  • May 24 – June 3 Grade 4 Science Performance Test
  • Monday, June 6: Grade 4 Science Written Test

As a reminder the grades 3-5 English Language Arts and math tests will continue to be untimed, meaning as long as students are working productively, they will be given as much time as they need to complete the tests during the regular school day.

I hope that you will take the time to encourage your child to put forth their best efforts over the coming weeks as they prepare for the upcoming assessments. Please remember that the assessments are a great tool for educators to improve instruction and student learning and that these state assessments also provide valuable information about the great work being done in both our school and district.

If you have any questions about the upcoming tests, feel free to reach out to me by phone or via e-mail at

Mrs. Kelly Webster
Principal WES
