Hello Fronteras Families!
Happy Spring! The morning light is so fantastic! Thank you for the smiles and the waves at morning drop off! I can see them now! Yay daylight!
We hope everyone enjoyed a fabulous spring break! Whether you traveled or stayed put, we hope it was relaxing, rejuvenating, and filled with wonderful memories!
Quarter 4 is cruisin’ right along. Annual spring testing begins at the end of this month. Please reach out to your child’s homeroom teacher with any testing questions; dates, duration, schedule, etc.
If you have not returned your Intent Form(s), please do so by Wednesday, April 13th. If you’re planning for your student to attend Fronteras next school year, we must have your Intent Form turned into the office by April 13th. If Intent Forms are turned in after April 13th, your child will lose their spot in their grade level, and will have to go through our lottery on Tuesday, April 26th.
Spanish Spelling Bees (grades K-5th), Spanish Adjective (grades 3rd-5th) and Spanish Vocabulary Challenges (grades 6th-8th) are in full swing this month, next month, and in May. Reach out to your child’s homeroom teacher for the date and time if you’d like to attend – it would be great to have you join in! All bees and challenges are held in the classroom.
Wishing everyone a fantastic weekend!
