Next school year 2016-2017

The district has decided to keep our students time the same as this year. So there will be no change in the students schedule. Students will be in school from 7:55-2:55!


LAST ISIP/I-station Test (EOY)

Ms. Sternes has sent you the last iSip testing schedule.


  • Please remind your students that this is the END of YEAR assessment.
  • Monitor your students during the test!
  • Walk around them and ensure that they are focused!

The growth in our students is very evident! Let's keep working.


The last report card will be sent home with the I-station report that tells them where the student is with reading. Please see Ms. Sternes if you do not know how to access this report.


Thank you for making the Administrative Team up front feel special this week!

You guys did a great job! It was heartfelt!
