Keep Calm and Learn On

Although M-DCPS students are cognitively prepared for upcoming testing, they might develop a fear of performing poorly on examinations leading to test anxiety. This test anxiety can lead to negative consequences such as psychological distress (i.e. sadness, anxiety and distraction), academic underachievement, and insecurity. However, identification of these negative consequences can help parents and students better prepare to reduce its effect and in turn students can have improved coping and outcomes.

You are invited to attend the screening of the documentary Beyond Measure on Wednesday, February 24th at 6:00pm at the University of Miami Whitten Learning Center, room 120.
