How Parents Can Help Their Students Create Excellence on the OAA:


1.  Students should be in bed by 9 p.m. the night before the test.

2.  Students should eat breakfast either at home or school to have the fuel they need for optimum performance.

3.  As always, be your child's encourager.  Great things happen when we pursue them with a positive attitude!
