Weekly Update

  • M-STEP begins Wednesday, May 4, 2022 for grades 3-6th. Please be sure students are rested and ready to test. Students must bring their laptops and headphones to school. Please be sure students come to school everyday. M-STEP and NWEA testing take place the first few weeks in May.
  • Grades 2nd-5th grade car pick up please do not arrive before 4:05pm. I know everyone wants to get in the car pick up line early however the parking lot can hold only so many cars before the cars are backed on West Utica Road. We want our parking lot to continue to run as smooth as possible. Thank you for your cooperation this year.
  • May 3, 2022 Career Focus Event (all 6th Grade students). 11:00-1:00pm at the Palazzo Grande
  • Continue to reiterate appropriate bus behaviors: keep hands and feet to yourself even if you are playing, use appropriate language only, and stay in your assigned seats. I would like for students to continue riding the bus until the end of the year however; students that are forgetting to make good choices may need a different transportation route.
