A Message from the Superintendent

Dear Abington Community,

As we say goodbye to the cold dark winter days, we say hello to the warmer longer days of the spring season.  Unfortunately, that also means that we are in testing season.  School departments across Massachusetts will be administering the required state assessments. 

Please remember these tests are a culmination of work completed in and out of school over years.  Therefore, students should not try and “cram” or stay up studying for the exams.  However, they should get enough sleep, eat right and simply try to do their best.  It is similar to performance in sports or the arts.  You cannot over train before the big game or practice a musical instrument all night before a performance.  Doing these things will only impede success. 

Although the right amount of stress to be successful can be a powerful motivator, too much is a hindrance.  The pressure of these tests can be detriment to even well prepared students.  Student nervousness and anxiety can result in lost sleep, irritability, physical discomforts and interfere with performance.  Nobody wants a child to feel this way and we all want them to be successful.  Again, students should get enough sleep, eat right and simply try to do their best. 

Thank you for your support of your child’s education.

Sincerely,
Peter Schafer, Superintendent of Abington Public Schools
