Notes and Reminders

  • You will be receiving the gifted list soon to begin to develop class lists.
  • When you schedule your STAR testing during the benchmark period, please send me the date and time for both math and reading. Also, please remember that re-takes are only to be given under extenuating circumstances, and you'll need my prior approval.
  • Pat Broncato will be having the spring visit on Tuesday, May 17th for certified staff.
  • When you get a moment, please take the time to send a thank you note or email to our PTO and district for their kind gesture of offering lunch and other goodies this week.
  • Please continue to maintain a normal routine. If you plan any end of year activity/celebration, please get my prior approval.
  • In your weekly communication to parents, please continue to remind them to register for next school year (especially if the following grade level will potentially split).
  • As you begin to think about creating class lists for next year, please adhere to our clustering guidelines. Of course professional discretion should be used as well. This is one of the most important things we do, so be very thoughtful throughout the process.
