Benchmark Assessments

The students in grades 3-8 will be taking ELA and Math Benchmark Assessments this week. The assessments will be done online and will provide the teachers with instant feedback about what skills need some extra practice in preparation for the Terra Nova tests in March. This will help the 8th grade to prepare for high school placement tests.

Our Annual Thanksgiving Food Drive will end on Friday, November 22. Thank you for your generosity as we prepare food baskets for those in need!

Autumn Began!...and so did the Lost & Found!!

As the seasons change, our Lost & Found starts to grow! We already have some sweaters, jackets, and hoodies in the Lost & Found. The children take their layers off as they are running around the school yard at recess but forget to get them when the bell rings. If the child's name is on the sweater, we can return it to him or her. However, many articles do not have a name on the tag so they are sent to the office. Please remind your child to check the office for any missing items. The children are expected to be responsible for their belongings! Thank you!
