A Moment With Mrs. O'Donnell

Dear Attea Families,

Almost all of our students have completed their NWEA for Reading and Math! Yea! We strive for students to take ownership of their learning, set goals, work to achieve them, and reflect on growth. The results we obtain from NWEA assessments help us to create learning paths for students.

I shared an invitation with all our students for our ATTEA WINTER BLUES BASH on Friday, Jan 27th, from 3:15-5:30. Students will need to complete the BASH form to attend. The Bash is shaping up to be great fun and will include sports activities, a DJ playing music, and pizza and soda provided by SPAT- PTA. There will be a 5:30 pm activity buses for students who sign up on the BASH form. Parent pick up time is also 5:30pm.

I so appreciate all the teamwork our students have been displaying and look forward to celebrating it!

Go Flyers!

Mrs. O’Donnell
