Summer Reading Assignment
Every Daniell Middle School student can benefit from
using USA Test Prep to improve CRCT scores. This
home-based internet program is simple to use and your child's science teacher has
already helped him or her set up a member login
account. Teachers can actually monitor how often your
student uses the program. USA Test
Prep supports language arts,reading, mathematics, science, and social studies by breaking
down questions into the same domains as tested on the CRCT
through vocabulary, tests, practice, games, and videos. Encourage your child to get started and log as many hours as he or she can, even if just playing the games.
And if you are up for the challenge, it makes for great
family trivia too!
If your child is new to Daniell, just email Principal
Nelson for your activation code.
