Dear Fifth Grade Parent,Please complete the attached Request for testing form if you would like to have your child take the Middle School OLSAT (Otis-Lennon School Ability Test).  This test is mandated for students that would like to be considered into the Academically Enriched Middle School Program in District 24.  The two talented and gifted programs are IS 119 and IS 73.  This year students will not be able to take the test for IS122 in district 30.

If you are interested in the program, please complete the bottom portion of the form and return it to me on or before Wednesday, October 16, 2013. Please note that this process is optional.  If you are not interested, you do not have to submit the form.  If you do decide to apply, I will process the information and you will receive a letter notifying you about test dates and locations by mail.

You may also apply to the Mark Twain School, which is located in Coney Island, Brooklyn.  This school is open to all 5th graders in NYC.  If you are interested, please complete the top portion of the form and pick two talent areas.  The information will be processed and you will receive information about testing/auditions by mail.  Again, this is not mandatory, so if you are not interested simply leave this section blank.

Along with this form you will receive the Middle School District 24 directory.  The directory contains information about all middle schools in district 24 including IS 73, IS 119 and Mark Twain. Please hold on to this booklet.  In November you will be sent a middle school application.  If you register to take the OLSAT and/or the Mark Twain
Test you will have to complete this application.  You may also be able to apply to other middle schools in District 24

If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at (718) 383-7495.

Dear 6th Grade Parent:

Your child is eligible to take the Middle School OLSAT (Otis-Lennon School Ability Test) for consideration into the Academically Enriched Middle School program in District 24.

Students who are accepted into the program would have the option of attending IS 73 or IS 119, which are schools in District 24 for 7th and 8th grade. Please review the attached sheets for additional information about these schools.

If you would like your child to take the OLSAT test, please complete the request for testing form and return it to Ms. Alvarez on or before Wednesday, October 16, 2013.    Please note that this process is optional.  If you are not interested, simply do not return to form.

In November, you will be sent middle school applications for District 24/30 schools.  You will have to complete the applications if you sign up to take the test. The directories were sent home with your child so that you can view the information ahead of time, please hold on to them.  There is a lot of important information about these schools in the directory.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at (718) 383-7495.
