Notes and Other News...


  • Details regarding EOY Star Testing are forthcoming. Please read these carefully. We will briefly review on Wednesday morning.
  • Please make sure you are spot checking your students Chrome browsing history. They should only be using their devices for school related activities. Please report anything suspicious to me. I am working on a form letter to send to parents when something fishy shows up.
  • Summer Program will return to Student Packets this year. More details to follow...We will participate in One School, One Book when the 2016-2017 school year begins...Exciting stuff to come!
