A Message from Marcie

Happy Friday!

We hope that everyone had a great week. MAP reports were mailed out this week on February 9th, so please check your mailboxes for those reports. MAP Growth scores are just one data point that teachers use to determine how a student is performing. If you have questions about your child's progress, it is always best to reach out directly to your child's teacher for more specific information about their classroom performance.

On Monday, our students will celebrate Valentine's Day with their class at 2:30 p.m. Please remember that valentine cards may not contain any type of candy or food (due to our food allergy guidelines). Classroom teachers may have shared other details about class celebrations, so please refer to their communication.

A reminder that although we SHIELD tested at South Park yesterday afternoon, we are still waiting for a few results to trickle in. Please be vigilant as you head into the weekend.

Enjoy the weekend!


1st and 2nd Grade Music Concerts - Wednesday, February 16th

We are excited to have our first two in-person music concerts next week on Wednesday, February 16th. It is our school's obligation to keep audience numbers low for our in-person concerts. We respectfully ask that families stick to the 3-guest minimum unless it is truly an issue of childcare for the family. If that is the case, please reach out directly to Dr. Faust.

Call time for 1st Graders: 5:15 p.m.

1st Grade Performance Time: 5:30 p.m.

Call time for 2nd Graders: 6:15 p.m.

2nd Grade Performance Time: 6:30 p.m.

Please check Seesaw for specific details sent by Mr. D.
