As March draws to a close so does our second trimester! We are also only a few short days away from the thrilling end to our March Madness Foul Shooting contest! Be sure to check back on Friday to see who won!
Have a great week,
All students in grades 3 through 5 have had the opportunity to experience the PARCC test. Test sessions are going smoothly and students are working hard each day! Here are the remaining testing dates for each grade level during this first testing window.
March 30-31 Grade 3 ELA
April 1-2 Grade 5 Math
April 6-7 Grade 4 Math
April 8-9 Grade 3 Math
Remember to have students get a good night's sleep prior to each of their testing days. It's also important that they eat a good breakfast before coming to school as PARCC testing begins right away each day.
Report Cards Now Available
Second trimester report cards are available on iPass. If you need to register for an account, please call the main office to obtain your child's student ID number.
