Take a look at what we have been doing for the week of Feb. 8-11

Next Week-Testing

Next week we will be taking the Gates/MacGinitie Standardized Test. We have been practicing for it all week. We will take a different subtest each day next week. We will start at 9:45 and hope to end around 10:15-10:30. (We will take wiggle breaks in between.) This is your normal standardized test in which we will be filling in the bubbles for. Please make sure your child gets plenty of rest the night before and has had a good breakfast to stay awake and alert. They have done a really awesome job practicing this week, so I think they will do just fine. Please help to get your child to school on time if possible so we will be ready to start the test on time. Thanks for all of your help with this.



Thanks so much for taking the time to come to our conferences this week. They were so excited to show you their writing piece and challenge you to the math game.

Happy Valentine's Day!!! (a few days early)

Valentine Party

Thank you so much to Nicole Litten for planning and organizing our last party of the year. It was a huge success with robot snacks, a dance party challenge, painted rock friends, and bird feeders, too. Thank you to the parents that helped pull it off, too. We had a great time.

Just a Few Reminders

  • As it is starting to get chilly outside, please dress your child in layers (jacket, short sleeves, etc.) Our rooms are warm and I don't want your child to be too hot inside and cold outside! DON'T FORGET A JACKET/COAT!
  • Please go through your child's backpack every evening to see their accomplishments and charge their iPad!
