Happy Friday!

We just finished our first week of state assessments! Thank you for all of your preparation for kiddos to do well! Next week we will be taking our Math assessments. Again, make sure kids are well rested and have a healthy breakfast on Monday and Tuesday!

I hate to be a debbie downer, but I am looking for some support at home. There are many factors that lead to this week being much crazier than normal: testing, beautiful weather, end of the year, ect. However, I struggled this week with kids being respectful. They love each other so much they just can't seem to STOP TALKING! I am sending home some pay day slips and some of you may be surprised by them. It is my hope that you will look at them and return them signed so that your child can get "paid" this week. Also, I am going to enforce the rule that they cannot go to fun Friday next week if they do not have this slip signed. I've noticed the only ones coming back have been the GREAT week ones... funny how that works out. So, I know signing things is a hassle, but please take a minute to do so, so that we can bridge the gap between school and home when it comes to behavior. Thank you for your support.
