Saturday School to Offer PARCC Exposure Series
In collaboration with MCPS, Saturday School is pleased to offer MCPS families the opportunity participate in PARCC Exposure, a series of Saturday sessions, beginning March 12, designed to help students become more familiar with taking the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) exams this spring. Beginning Saturday, March 12, in addition to the strong literacy and math support teachers deliver, students will be exposed to the PARCC assessments on computers and Chromebooks. Certified MCPS teachers will use publicly released items as part of their literacy and math tutoring sessions to reinforce what students are learning during the week.
Your child can be a part of this exciting opportunity by registering for Saturday School at www.SaturdaySchool.org Registration is $40 for students who receive Free and Reduced-price Meals (FARMS) and $70 for non-FARMS students.
Parents are invited to the March 12 parent training at all 12 centers to learn more about the PARCC assessment.
The George B. Thomas, Sr. Learning Academy, also known as Saturday School, is a low-cost tutoring and mentoring program that provides an extra day of learning and helps MCPS students enhance their mastery of core academic subjects. Students in grades 1 through 12 who are in need of additional academic support can attend sessions at one of 12 locations across Montgomery County.
