Hello wonderful families!

I hope you had a restful weekend and enjoyed the beautiful warm weather. We are looking forward to a great week ahead as we finish out the last week in March.

Congratulations to TJ Smith for being named the Elementary Student of the Month for March! Great job!

We welcome a new student to our 4th-grade class. We are so happy to have you Leighanna!

Report cards were sent home Friday. Please review your grades and let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

**Looking ahead: Students will be taking a Mock EOG the week of April 3rd-6th for reading and math. 5th grade will also have science. This will not be counted towards their grade. It is an assessment to show where the students are currently and will help me with lesson design and review for upcoming EOGs. Please encourage students to take their time and work as hard as they can. I will post the times and schedule in next week's email.

*Please complete the intent form if you have not done so. It is located in the repeat information at the bottom of this email.
