This week...

Hi All,

Great week last week. As I observe the classrooms, I appreciate the care that goes into each one regarding personalizing the environment. Many classes are allowing students to take ownership of their learning spaces - whether that be to stand, sit on the floor, etc... Our teachers take great pride in getting to know students and learning what works for them.

A few things:


  • Book Fair
  • Testing
  • Donuts with Dad

Check calendar for specifics.

Finally, as we approach our testing windows, please stress to your children that they.are.ready. No stress! Have a good breakfast - and lots of sleep.

Have a great week! Sorry for the delay in the newsletter - I was dance mom Friday, Sat, and Sun!
