NOTE FROM THE PRINCIPAL...
State testing for Grades 3-5 went quite smoothly. Thank you for scheduling appointments and other activities around the schedule. We have just a handful of students left who need to complete portions of the test.
Speaking of state testing, this year parents will create accounts on the Smarter Balanced (SBAC) website to get electronic student score reports. As I receive more information from the Ed Services department at the district office, I will provide that information to you.

It's APEX Time!
We had a fantastic pep rally this past Monday introducing the students to the upcoming Apex Fun Run. Each student brought home their individual pledge kit this week, as well as, their personal donation log in. An Apex team member will visit each class daily to instruct character building lessons leading up to race day.
The students are working on the word STRONG.
Our Fun Run will be on Wednesday, May 22nd.
The Fun Run schedule for May 22 is:
ASD @ 8:30 am
3-5 @ 9:00 am
AMK-2 @ 10:15 am
PMK @ 11:30 am
We are looking for volunteers to help us count the laps of the students. Clink the link below to sign up:
