Georgia Milestones

2018-2019 Milestones Test Dates for Berkeley Lake Elementary 3rd - 5th Graders:

To ensure that our students are ready to perform at their best on this task, we offer a few testing reminders for our 3rd, 4th, & 5th graders:

  • Get a good night’s sleep before each testing day.
  • Try to avoid late sports practices or games, late night TV, and late night electronics. When students are rested they are able to concentrate and do their best on the test.
  • Eat a light, nutritious breakfast each morning before testing.
  • Food is the fuel that powers the body and the brain. Fruits, carbohydrates (such as breads) and proteins (such as eggs) work best to give students testing energy.
  • Be in school each day and on time.
  • Schedule any doctor or dentist appointments in the late afternoon during the week of testing.

Lunch Schedule Changes During Testing

Please note that the lunch schedule will be different during the two weeks of GMAS testing. We encourage parents to wait until testing is complete on May 1st before coming to eat lunch with your child.

Education Galaxy

This is a paid subscription site, to which Berkeley Lake already has the subscription. All students have been working in Education Galaxy already this year, but to have students work on specific state standards, students should select a topic under "My Study Plan" once a subject has been selected. The topics under this area come from Georgia state standards. If your child does not know his/her Education Galaxy log in, please email Jessica Hill.
