News from Mrs. Testa....

*PTO Meeting is Tuesday, April 12th. We will meet at 5:30 in the library. Please come to help us make plans for the rest of the year.
*Testing is next week for our 3rd and 4th graders. We will be doing our reading test on April 12th and 13th. Then math will be the next week on the 19th and 20th. A hot breakfast will be served in the cafeteria on testing days starting at 7:30. PLEASE MAKE SURE STUDENTS ARE ON TIME THESE DAYS! They have been working extremely hard and we know they will all do their best! Please help us out by making sure your child is getting plenty of rest, eating a good healthy breakfast and getting to school on time. We need all students at school so they can be prepared. If at all possible please refrain from scheduling appointments during school hours until after testing.

*Planning forms need to be sent back to school by next Thursday, April 14th. They are on a gold piece of paper. We want to make sure everyone gets their spot reserved for next year.

*1st and 2nd grade field trip notes went home last week. First graders will go to the Cornerstone Ranch in Ada on the 14th and second graders will go to the Tulsa Zoo on the 13th. If you have any questions about these two trips please call the office. Students will need to ride the bus to the field trip but may be checked out with their teachers to ride home with you. The third grade students will go to the Aquarium on April 29th. Be looking for that permission slip to be coming home next week.

*The Buff Run is next week. If you are interested in participating please see the information below. You can also get a registration form in the office. Mrs. Homer is going to take a pie to the face if we have 100 students register to run. If we get 150 students Mrs. Norman, myself and Mrs. Homer will take a pie to the face.
