I can not believe we are down to the last 31 days of school. It is going so quickly. As you can see below, we are very busy right up to the end. Please check the calendar and notice important dates.
This is the last week we will be offering the morning open computer lab time. We will be using the lab daily for SAGE testing. Students will only be allowed to enter the building at 8:15 for breakfast. If they are not eating breakfast, they will not be able to come inside until their teacher brings them in at 8:40. Please do not drop them off before 8:30, unless they are at the school to eat breakfast, running club or Chess Club.
Mark Your Calendars - SAGE TESTING: We will be administering the SAGE test to all 3rd-5th grade students during the weeks of May 8th- 26th. Please try to have your student(s) at school on time each day during that window. If you plan to be on vacation or absent of any reason, please let your teacher know in advance.
The Marathon Club Finish Line will be on Friday, May 26th at 7:45. We are so proud of our runners! Way to go!
Next week, May 1st – 5th, we will be celebrating Teacher Appreciate Week. Attached is the student schedule for the week. Thank you for helping us thank our fabulous teachers.
