Carter Nursery School of Needham MA’s only fundraiser will take place this coming Saturday. The event is a late winter highlight for residents of Needham and surrounding communities. In addition to games and activities, the Carnival generates excitement through a silent auction. Make sure you bid on the Y3K Tutor In Your Home tutoring and test prep certificate at the auction. Proceeds from this Carnival help pay for enrichment programs and scholarships for families in need. We at Y3K Tutor In Your Home are glad to be able to help this worthy cause.

The country is getting ready for new nationwide tests to measure student performance. Coming soon will be a trial run of the new national standardized test called Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC). About 2/3 of MA’s schools have been chosen to participate in the PARCC trial next spring. This includes the Y3K Tutor In Your Home communities of Natick and Weston. The full list of schools participating in the trial run have not been released yet as some are still being chosen and notified.
Check back here tomorrow for how the MCAS 10th grade graduation requirement will be handled.
On November 19, 2013 the Massachusetts Board of Education approved the new nationwide Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) tests for a two-year trial run in certain locations. Later in 2015, they will then decide if it will be used on an ongoing basis. Come back tomorrow for some towns taking this test later this spring.
Just when you thought the MCAS tests for the state were stressful for many students, most states nationwide (including Massachusetts) have decided on national standardized tests. Many parents have questions and concerns about how these new tests will affect their children. Over the next 10 posts, we will take an in-depth look at the new tests headed your way. You will not want to miss this!
