Worthington Park Shark Sentinel
Friday, January 14th, 2022
Dear Worthington Park Families,
What a great week at Park! It was exciting to have the building open and complete our first five-day school week of 2022. I am particularly proud of our students who began their Winter MAP (Measures of Academic Progress) testing in ELA and Math this past week. They showed incredible determination and grit. We will continue testing next week.
We look forward to seeing all of our Sharks back in the building on Tuesday, January 18th as we will be closed on Monday in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Have a great weekend and Go Sharks!
Winter Weather Reminder
Weather and health permitting, we expect all children to go outside for recess. In our schools, when the weather is dry/dry enough, and the temperature is 20 degrees or higher, real temperature, or wind-chill, we plan to take students outside for recess.
Thank you for helping keep our Sharks warm on the playground!
