Principal Post

Our DuJardin 2nd & 3rd graders will be performing their chorus program “Kid Flix”on Thursday, April 11. Performances are 1:30 or 7:00 p.m. We look forward to another great performance by DuJardin students!


IAR testing is complete. The students in third through fifth grades did an excellent job completing all five tests. Much appreciation goes out to the DuJardin staff for preparing the students for these assessments. Make-up testing will wrap up next week.


MAP testing will take place at all grade levels between April 15th through May 10th . The results will be available once the testing window closes on May 10th. These results along with other information will help in the process of placing students in homerooms for next year. Student results from MAP testing will be sent home to parents in the 3rd trimester report card.


Thank you also to Mrs. Burritt and Mrs. Lents for organizing yesterday morning’s “Fruit with Family.” What a great way to start the day!


Please note that we DO NOT have a School Improvement Day 1:40 Dismissal in April .
