From the Principal:

We have had a busy week of benchmark testing! Thank you for getting your student to school on time each morning--it makes a huge difference!

We have one more week until Spring Break! Remember that Spring Break is March 13-17. We have a full day of school on Friday, March 10, and school will resume on Monday, March 20.

Continue to work hard at home with your students--review the concepts they are learning in class and make sure they are taking time to read every night.

Have a great weekend!

Counselor's Corner :

For March, our students will continue to learn about Respect. One way we show Respect to others is by being polite and using good manners. When we use good manners, we are more enjoyable to be around. When parents are good role models and show respect to others, then children learn respect also! Children will copy what they see from us as parents—the good and the bad!

From Our Specials Teachers:

Art: What are the Elements of Art?

Music: Class Talent Shows have begun today! Please make sure your child has everything they need to perform their talent during Music Class. Any acts that we don't get to, will perform after Spring Break. I'm excited to see all of our students' performances!

PE: Dear 6th grade parents, this year we will be having a Life School District Track Meet.

The students will be trying out for various events in PE over the next couple of weeks. More information about this event will follow.
