How to receive your technology device:


We have exciting news! All students will receive devices in the future. However, we need your help. Please click on the links below to watch the informative video and to fill out the required parent technology agreement for your student. We will need these items done before we can release their devices to them. We will want to get started as soon as they arrive. Please check this off your list ASAP. Thanks for all of your help with this in advance. 🙂

Fall Benchmark Testing Week

This week, students will complete benchmark exams in their core classes of Math, Science, Social Studies and Reading/Language Arts. The tests are cumulative, meaning they cover material learned since the first instructional day. The data gained from these exams will help us determine each student's academic progress and needs as we design instruction for the upcoming weeks. Please ensure that your child gets plenty of sleep and good meals this week. You may also ask them to show you their interactive notebook, which is a great resource when studying for exams. Explaining the key concept on each page to a parent is a great way to review.

Week of November 16, 2020

Continue being diligent about wearing your mask to school each day. By following this safety protocol, we are able to avoid exposure to viruses, which allows students and teachers to remain in school. This is an important step in getting back to normal. You have done a great job. Now, keep up the good work.
