The War Cry

Everyone, Everyday; High Standards, High Achievement

Volume 18-19: Friday, January 25, 2019

Principally Speaking

NWEA testing was completed today. On Monday, the results can be reviewed. I am excited to see how our students performed. It is typical to see dips in performance mid-year, but I am hopeful our students will prove to be atypical! I will be sure to share our progress with you next week. In the meantime, enjoy this week's publication and stay warm!
