Testing Dates! 
As we have been talking for the last couple of weeks, we are in the midst of the final 9 weeks of the school year. Although it is filled with testing, completing teaching of this year’s standards and fun activities around the school, we are planning on filling all remaining days of school with instruction! All end of year parties will be after instruction. We will be filling the days with expansion of skills or introduction into next year’s standards. Learning will be incorporated right up until the end of school. This may look different than in past years since our testing has been moved up into the month of April but I wanted to assure everyone in our building that learning will not cease after testing! Our philosophy in testing is that it is only one measurement of how our children do and just a snapshot of a day in time…The baseline will established this year and we will see where we need to go from there. I know there are a lot of concerns and anxiety when we talk about testing students but our goal is to make this process next week a part of our daily routine and place all students at ease.
Your job will be to make sure your child gets a great start to each day by:
Getting a full night’s rest!
Getting Breakfast!
Getting to school early (on time)!
Please let us know if we can assist you or your family in any way!
