Hawk Happenings!

Holy Rosary Bilingual Academy


Dear Families,

Sorry for the late Smore this week! I don't think I have seen my office at all because I have been testing grades 2 - 8 for MAP in Language, Reading, and Math. The kids are doing great. It has been a packed week of testing, but we will finish today and the scores are looking really good overall!! We will send the results home with final report cards in June. For grades 1-6, we will do AAPPL testing on Monday, June 3rd and Tuesday, June 4th. They will be doing the "speaking" component, where they have a conversation in Spanish with an avatar. Those results will be available by the end of June.

Check out the info below for all of the upcoming events. If you purchased roller skating and/or paint ball, don't forget that the permission slips are due today!! We have sent them out twice this week and still do not have all of them in. The child cannot attend without a completed permission slip.

One last item, please send your child with a water bottle on PE days...it is getting very warm outside. Thank you!!

Have a wonderful week! Don't forget...no school tomorrow or Monday!
