iReady Diagnostic #3~~UPDATE

4th and 5th grades take the iReady diagnostic between April 13-17.


K-3rd grades take the iReady diagnostic between May 1-28.

Marking Tardies

If a parent drop off student arrives to your class after 8:10 (within a few minutes) and does not have a pass, they are present. We close the gate at 8:10 am. As long as they are on campus by this time, they are present. Students that arrive after must enter through the office and receive a pass. This will help you distinguish which to mark present and which to mark tardy.

Growth Mindset Assembly

NED Shows will present a school-wide assembly on growth mindset on March 30 at 1:30 pm. More information will be shared!

End of Year Activities

As we approach the end of the 3rd quarter, be thinking about your end of the year activities. Since FSA testing is later this year, things will fill up quickly on our school calendar. Please email me anything you want added to the calendar!
