Open House

One of the most exciting evenings of the year comes this Thursday. Open House. I love walking the school and seeing the excitement of kids and parents as they see all the wonderful things you are doing in your classrooms. I hope this week brings minimal stress, and you are all able to enjoy the hard work you and your students have done this year.

Onward, Jason

Here is one of the completed videos from Mary's class project on BEST. She shared with us earlier in the year that groups of students were adopting different areas and making it their own. Thanks for sharing Mary.

Art Faire

We will be holding an Art Fair in the MPR for Open House. Please mount your art on a 6x6 panel and put it in the fishbowl to be hung. Ellie will be organizing and hanging the art before Open House.

STAR Testing Window

Please complete the STAR or Early STAR in the window of 5/16 to 5/27.

Printing to the workroom printer

Do you like to print to the copier in the workroom? It is very convenient, but it has also created some confusion. When people print at the same time as someone is copying, the copies often end up in the middle of someone else's job. When printing to the copier, please bring your laptop into the workroom to make sure the printer is available.
