Scavenger Hunt Extended

The scavenger hunt is extended through Friday.

Color Run Tuesday?

Your guess is as good as mine. Looks like rain. We'll make a final decision on Monday.

Free Friday

I'm going to do a new signup with indoor stations only for kids so we can get this sucker done!! Stay tuned.

Reporting EOC Data

The purpose of the EOC exams is measure our level of mastery instruction this year. Will it be a little sketchy? Uh...yeah. But it's data that we're going to use to improve.

Any child who has a 0, 0.5, 1, or 1.5--look at the EOC to determine if you can move them up a mastery level. DO NOT USE THE DATA TO MOVE KIDS DOWN. Up only.
