NWEA Testing Starting This Week

Once again, our students will be assessed in ELA and Math using the NWEA assessment. This is a universal screening tool we use to evaluate our program, our curriculum and our practices in teaching. The data gathered is used to adjust curriculum and teaching practices for our scholars. It is one measure point in multiple measures we use to gauge our teaching. Please talk with your child about taking this evaluation seriously as we do look at all data to see how our scholars are progressing. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate in asking your child's teacher.

Family Movie Night is Rescheduled to February 9th. Look for the Flyer

Reminder: Make Sure Your Emergency Addresses are Correct on Emergency Sheets

As you know, we are in the months of unpredictable weather patterns. We just want to remind everyone to have the correct place where your child goes in case of an early dismissal. Be aware, that all notes are voided if this is called and we follow the emergency addresses on your emergency sheet. This is for the safety of all our students. When this is called, the office goes into emergency procedures as we only have so long to get our children on the correct buses and dismissal. We will not accept ANY changes over the phone for the safety of our children. Although these days are rare, we have had them, so please be alert to weather patterns. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation for the safety of all!
