Weekly Knight Notes

Week of 5-4-15

Parent Conversation

On Saturday evening I was at a Kentucky Derby party (a lot of build up for something that was over in 2 minutes). Anyways, there was a parent whose children is a 6th grader at Oak Farm. She seemed undecided on where to send him for middle school, of course I jumped right in to help her decide. I found myself bragging about so many great things that take place at our building that I quickly realized I didn't have enough time to talk to this parent. It is amazing that once you stop and think of all the great things you do for our students how long the list actually gets. This parent was impressed with the items we have in place to help our kids succeed and how we make it as fun as possible at our building. Thank you for everything you do that makes it easy to brag about ENMS!

Thank You

I wanted to thank everyone again for the great week of ISTEP testing. The week went extremely smooth with very little issues. You all did a great job of being prepared and being very flexible when things did come up. On Friday we had 4 people out and we had volunteers fill in for testing without missing a beat.


Friday afternoon was a lot of fun for the kids and staff. Even though we had to come inside it still turned out to be a very entertaining afternoon. Thank you for those staff members at the end who got volunteered to be mummified. The kids love to see you guys like that and that is what makes our school great.
