Reminders and Updates

You would have been so proud to see how hard all of our students worked last week on the ELA tests! We couldn't have asked for more.


This coming week is our MATH test on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Please make sure that your child:


  • Goes to bed early
  • Has a healthy breakfast
  • Has a snack

Colonial Day

Colonial Day is this TUESDAY, April 12th! It is always a great day full of crafts and great costumes!


Girls can easily transform themselves into a colonial girl with some items from home. Wear a long skirt and white blouse or dress and add an apron. Braid your hair into pigtails and add a mobcap (if you have one).


The boys can take a pair of old pants and cut them into breeches. In the past, many of our boys have worn their baseball pants and socks with a white button down shirt. Add a vest and a tricorn hat (if you have one).


We have also had a few students in the past dress as a colonial soldier, George Washington or a native american indian.
