The Forward

Starting next week, we will be taking the Forward Exam. Hopefully you found the note in your child's folder yesterday with our testing dates on it. Also, if everyone could please bring in 9 healthy, nut-free granola bar type snacks. In the past we have collected boxes of granola bars, but the students only liked the kind they brought in. So, to make it easier, we are asking each student to bring in 9 snacks that he/she will eat. Some ideas are granola bars (without peanut butter), fruit and cereal bars (Nutri-grain, etc.), bags of dry cereal, bags of granola, etc. The students will be able to eat their snack prior to testing (or after, if they prefer).

Engineering Week

Did you know that this was "Engineering Week"? Mr. Kibbel, an engineer at Kimberly Clark, came to present to us about different types of engineering. Then he let the students actually try to their hands at some engineering experiments. It was so much fun!!!! I thought I would share some pictures as well!


  • Forward Testing Dates: April 14, 18, 20, 22, 26, 28, 29, and May 3 and 4. We will be testing in the mornings, and test lengths differ, but all testing will be finished by lunch. This test is untimed so students will get as much time as they need to complete the test.
  • Alice in Dairyland will be coming to present to us on Thursday, April 14!
  • Friday, April 15, is a 12:00 release day.
