I trying out a new text app that will allow me to blast out text to all staff. I'm playing around with it for staff and will then introduce to parents. This will also allow you to message parents as a group. Many of you are on it and are receiving the messages. If you aren't please let me know so I can get you signed up. Also if you are getting the emails but not the texts let me know.

Positive Behavior Day

We will be having Positive Behavior Day on May 6th. It is a Super Hero Theme. Go Big!

We are aware that there are students that have not added to the overall positive culture of the school. We will get with you about those students.

Positive Behavior Day Schedule

We will follow the regular Art, Music and PE schedule on May 6th. There will be no library or counseling classes.
I left the schedule on my computer at school for the special activity time so I will send it out in the morning. It will be similar to the special activities we had on Winter Wonderland Day.

FAST Testing

Eric, Sarah and I will be pulling students starting on Monday for FAST assessments. We will start in 3rd grade and work our way down to K. We will pull ELL students tomorrow so we have the data to plan with on Monday.
