Principal's Message - Mrs. Christian
I cannot believe April is already here! It seems like just yesterday we were greeting all of our students back to school. Though the year has gone by quickly, we have many more exciting things to come.
We just finished Benchmark testing for our 3rd-5th grade students, and we will be doing the same with our K-2 students this month. The purpose of these assessments is to determine what our students have learned up to this point, and make a pan of action to get them to a successful finish line for the year.
That being said, attendance is very important for each and every student, each and every day. From the minute announcements are over in the morning, until the dismissal bell in the afternoon, our teachers and staff are working diligently to ensure that success. Thank you for partnering with us in this endeavor.
A lot of great activities are coming up this month and next. April 12th, we will have our Math & Science Night, and 4th/5th grade music program. See below for details about this exciting event.
The Bond Election is May 7th, with early voting April 25th -May 3rd. Register to vote by April 7th! A district-wide carnival is scheduled for May7th. Please see below for more details on this, also.
As always, thank you for sharing your most precious gifts with us. We treasure the opportunity to be a part of their lives!
