Superintendent's Message


Dear Nevis Public School Parents,

As we approach the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment (MCA) season, I wanted to take a moment to share some insights and tips on how you can help your child prepare effectively. The MCA is not just a test; it's an opportunity for your child to showcase their knowledge and skills, and your support plays a crucial role in their success.

  1. Encourage Regular Attendance: Make sure your child attends school regularly, especially during the weeks leading up to the assessment. Missing class means missing valuable instruction time, which could impact their performance on the test.
  2. Establish a Positive Attitude: Approach the MCA with a positive mindset. Encourage your child to see it as a chance to demonstrate what they've learned rather than a source of stress or pressure. Remind them that their worth is not defined by a single test score.
  3. Review Test-taking Strategies: Familiarize your child with test-taking strategies such as reading directions carefully, managing time effectively, and eliminating obviously incorrect answer choices. Practice sample questions together to build confidence and proficiency.
  4. Manage Stress: Help your child manage test-related anxiety by teaching relaxation techniques such as deep breathing or visualization. Encourage them to focus on their strengths and celebrate their efforts, regardless of the outcome.
  5. Reinforce the Importance of Effort: Emphasize the value of hard work and effort rather than focusing solely on the end result. Remind your child that success is a journey, and each step forward is worth celebrating.

Remember, the MCA is just one measure of your child's academic growth and achievement. While we aim for success, it's equally important to foster a love of learning and resilience in the face of challenges. Thank you for your ongoing support and partnership in your child's education journey
