Hill Elementary School ~ April 27, 2015

I hope that everyone had a restful weekend! Today is the first day of the M-Step. Michelle will be taking the lead this morning as her 4th grade students will take the ELA assessment. Chris Lesko and the tech department have been amazing. We have support in the building this morning just in case we have any tech issues. Please be sure to talk with students about quiet zones in our hallways during testing.

I am so proud of our staff and all that you do each and every day. Our students are as prepared as they can be. A special kudos to Leigh Anne, Michelle, Suzie, Jodi, and Lisa for all of their preparation with the new guidelines and procedures. Your "can do" attitude makes a difference in the lives of our students!

Have a wonderful week!
