Clean Up Day Tomorrow! (8a - 1p)

Tomorrow, March 7, is our spring clean up day. We've had a slight change in plans and no longer need to build a fence. However, we need lots of help in the garden and other outdoor spaces. For those who prefer to work inside, we need assistance there, too.


We need lots of help, so we hope to see you in the morning.


Please bring your outdoor tools such as hammers, shovels, rakes, etc.


*If you attended our last work day, please check your hedge trimmers and make sure you do not have Ms. Clamser's. Her disappeared that day and still have not returned. They are labeled with her name.*

Garden Project

Our students would like to add both a Butterfly garden and a garden of plants native to Arkansas to our school garden. Ms. McCarroll is looking for parents who would be interested in helping to develop these projects. Please contact her at if you would like to help. No previous gardening experience is required!


Please call or text Ms. McCarroll if you are interested or have questions: 479-414-2361.

Testing - Week of March 16

Parents, please remember standardized testing for grades 1-6 begins on Monday, March 16. Students will need a good breakfast each morning and plenty of rest. Our teachers make it as stress free as possible. Students often look forward to testing week because they get extra recess and good snacks!


Please note the testing schedule. You are welcome to bring your child at lunch if they test in the afternoon or pick them up at lunch if they test in the morning. Please let the office know if they will be coming or going at lunch. It is very important they arrive on time, or even a few minutes early, so they do not miss any of the questions.


Morning Testing (8a - 11a):

1st Graders

Upper Elementary


Afternoon Testing (12p - 3p):

2nd & 3rd Level


Please let us know if you have any questions.
