Cedar Hill Elementary April 20, 2015


Today is the big day!!! All of our hard work, preparation, great teaching and learning is going to be on display!!! I know you all are ready, and the students will do great! There may be an occasional glitch during testing, but I know you all will handle things calmly and positively! Please buzz the office if you need any assistance during testing. After testing, please distribute tickets to your hard-working, positive test-takers, and at the end of the day, draw three names from your class. I will call for those winning students to come to the office to get a small prize!! Thank you for all your hard work this year!!! It will show!!

Other than morning announcements at 9:00, there will not be announcements throughout the day. I will be testing when fifth grade is testing, so please do not sent students to the office. You may utilize other classrooms if a student needs a different time-out location. Call Gabe if necessary or send a runner with a note.

Please feel free to send well wishes to our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders (and their teachers) as they begin testing. Cards and posters from younger students mean a lot to them!

Evacuation Drill Today

We will delay the evacuation drill today until around 3:40. If it is not going to work with testing students, we will postpone it to another day. Listen for the announcement, and be ready... just in case.

Cedar Hill Rocks!!!!!

Don't forget our carnival is this Friday evening!!!! The sign-up sheet is on the workroom door! As of right now, it should be dry with a high of 65 degrees! PERFECT!!!

Friday is also Popcorn Friday! We will serve all popcorn to classrooms in the afternoon due to testing.
