The “S” in STARR is StreSS, an 8th grade point of view

 “The STAAR test is just around the corner!”  I cannot tell you how many times I hear that  sentence in a day. The fact that the 8th graders have to take four STARR tests this year is worrying.   The stress is just piling up – from formulas and terminology for math, theme and paired text for reading, moon phases and periodic tables for science, and a test that is basically all memorization and connecting, U. S. history .  (That’s the one which gives me the most stress.)

Still, if we continue to pay attention, study and try our best, we Seahawks can get threw this obstacle and succeed!  Let’s Go Seahawks !!
