March 2022 - Character Theme of the Month: Citizenship

Principal's Page

We are excited to be approaching spring!

This also means state assessments will begin soon.

State Assessments: March is a short month due to the number of days we will not be in school. As teachers prepare our students for state assessments; here are a few tips to keep in mind...We encourage all families to schedule vacations and appointments around the scheduled testing dates. We have minimal make-up days restricted to a specific window schedules for students who are ill or absent for unavoidable reasons. We encourage all students to get a good night's sleep the nights before each test and to eat a good breakfast. If you have questions or concerns regarding any of the tests mentioned below, please feel free to contact your child's teacher. Below you will find the assessment calendar for our students.

Spring Break-March 14th-March 18th

Mindfulness Tip: In a world full of doing, doing, doing-it's important to take a moment to just breathe, to just be.

Last but certainly not least I would like to encourage you to hug your students and remind them that they are loved.

Happy March!

Counselor's Corner

Citizenship is the character word for March. Citizenship implies that we not only have certain rights, but that we also have certain responsibilities to ourselves and to others. A good citizen cares and cooperates with others in order to take good care of our school, neighborhood, town, and earth. It is Important that as adults we serve as good role models for our children and the future of our planet.

Thank you for your support,

Counselor, Mr. Mark Kelley
