Spring Testing Begins Next Week for 3rd and 4th Grade
April 16-17 - 3rd and 4th Grades
April 23-24 - 2nd Grade
Here are a few reminders to help your child be successful during their testing time. Be sure students arrive at school in plenty of time to not be rushed before testing. Also, during testing, students will need a pair of earbuds or headphones. These cannot be wireless as they do not work with the device when the testing program is being used. Please make sure your students have a working pair of earbuds or headphones with them each day. Also, make sure they get plenty of rest and eat a good breakfast before they begin testing which will help them do their best!
Did you know we have earbuds and headphones available in the school store? Earbuds are $1.35 and headphones are $3.00. The school store is open on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 7:15 - 7:35 am.
Young Author's Week Coming Soon
If you have a book (or CD) by any of our guests, please send it to Mrs. Richey by April 25. Be sure your child's name is on the inside front cover. They will be able to get their books signed along with everyone who ordered one from the pre-order form. To learn more about our guests, see below.

Kindergarten Enrollment is Nearing
We are beginning to gather names of children that will be entering Kindergarten for the 2019-2020 school year. If you have a child that will be starting Kindergarten with us in August, please email Sherri Poarch at firstname.lastname@example.org with the child's first and last name, a parent's name, email and phone number so that we can include you on our list! We will be emailing enrollment packets to families shortly after spring break. Our Kindergarten enrollment date is April 25 from 4-6.
If you know anyone in the community that has a student that will be enrolling with us in August, please share this information with them. Thank you!
