TEAMING UP! MAP Test time is HERE!!!

Next Wednesday and the following Wednesday we will be MAP testing all day. It is INCREDIBLY important that students arrive ON TIME, because testing begins at 8:40am!

There will be perks to being here each day and on time, including several prizes and drawings! Each student will receive a punch card for following our ROAR expectations and being here on time and all day!

As you know, it is also essential that students are eating right (especially that healthy breakfast!) and getting lots of good sleep! They will also need lots of encouragement and support from their loved ones! :) I just know these kids are going to rock this MAP test like the superstars they are!!!

I don't know if the link to the video above will work or not, but the Price Staff and a few students made a very special music video to motivate students! If the link doesn't work, simply visit Price Elementary's facebook page!

Science Fair Update!

I sent home the display board on April 4th and it's due back to school completed on April 25th. The science fair will be the evening of April 29th in correlation with the K-2 music program.

Please let me know if I can be of assistance during this process. I will check on projects again in a few weeks!

Field Trip!

Just a reminder, our field trip to Wilson's Creek Battlefield is April 27th!

Grade Level Improvement Plan (GLIP) Update

73% of all Price 4th grader's are proficient or higher in writing! Woo-Hoo! We're so close to our goal of 100%!

Our Building Level Improvement Plan (BSIP) Goals are:

  • 100% of Price K-5th will be at proficient or mastery levels on quarterly writing grade-level assessments.


The third annual ROAR Run 5K and 1 mile fun run will take place on Saturday, May 7 this year! More details are forthcoming regarding registration, event details and our elementary and RMS running club opportunities.

Please consider participating in the race or as a volunteer!

Over 1000 people were in attendance last year, and we are looking forward to another great event in 2016!

Summer School!!!

Click here to see summer school offerings! Registration will be online only, and the deadline to enroll will be May 6.

Keep in mind, students will be enrolled in the grade level they will attend for the 2016-2017 school year (EX: current 5th graders will enroll at RMS as 6th graders, current 8th graders will enroll at RHS as 9th graders). This means that incoming kindergarten students are eligible to enroll as well!

Breakfast and lunch will be provided FREE of charge for all children 18 and under. We are excited to be offering Spanish as a special class for our elementary students! Transportation will not be provided by the district.

Summer school will take place Monday through Friday using the below schedule:

Elementary: May 31-June 24 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:10 p.m. (Kindergarten pick-up at 2:50 p.m.)

Please read the newsletters!

I have succeeded in my goal to prove that MOST of my student's families read this newsletters! Great job, everyone! I do have a few that may miss the newsletter, so please make sure you do take a moment over each weekend to read our class updates!
