Shout outs

SUPERB job Ms. Brown with the DI team! The team will be presenting at south high this Sat. at 10:30.

Way to go Mr. Lindner and Mr. Beaver! Our Rubik's Cube team, from the logic club, will be competing on April 2nd in Baltimore. If you see members from this team, please wish them luck! This team will have to solve 25 rubik's cubes as fast as possible!

Great job EVERYONE getting the school cleaned up and ready for our outside visitors over the past few weeks.

Thank you Mrs. O'Leary for coming to the March PTA meeting :)


We will have a pot luck lunch this Monday. Please sign-up to bring something. Sign-up is on the fridge in the lounge :)

Active Shooter Drill

Don't forget our active shooter drill is Monday. Please plan on wearing comfortable shoes on Monday. Our work day will begin at 8:00.

Class Dojo

As a school, we will be using class dojo school-wide next year. Please take some time to look at the site and app and familiarize yourself with this. 5th grade uses this regularly, so if you have any questions, stop by and see Jessie or Joy.

Standards Based Report Cards

We will be looking at the standards based report cards closely as a building. Joy will be leading a collaborative teaming session this spring and over the summer (dates TBA). Our goal will be to familiarize ourselves with the history of the SBRC, the implications for school and home and a plan to create continuity within the building. Ultimately, we will have an instructional evening next fall for families.

Check out the WCPS site here!


We NEED pictures put in the "picture" folder in the PVE drive.

I especially need pictures of your PIE groups put in the PIE folder as I am creating an animoto for the exhibition. Please put pictures in asap :)
