Chaperone Needed

We are still in need of at least one more chaperone for our field trip to Demcon on Wednesday, February 7th from about 1:00pm-3:15pm. If you are interested, please email me. Thanks!

MCA Testing

Please mark your calendars for our scheduled MCA Tests. It is important that students are here during the testing times. Please do not schedule appointments during testing times.

Reading MCA - the week of April 23-27

Math MCA - the week of April 30-May 4

Science MCA - the week of May 7-11


Students will be taking the MCA tests on their school issued iPads. If your child does not have headphones or earbuds, it would be helpful to purchase a pair or borrow some from home. I have some headphones to loan out, but currently do not have enough for everyone who needs them.
