Fairfield Panther Paw

April 14, 2023

From Mrs Tennenbaum

We have our first round of testing for our 3rd and 4th graders. We are so proud of their effort. We have one more round with Math coming up. Remember to remind them of a good night's sleep, and a good breakfast. Please do not schedule any appointments during their testing time. Our students have been so helpful being quiet in the hallways! I just love how our Panthers care about one another. We need to stay engaged and focused as we continue to learn and grow.
