  • Timelines

From Holly Nevels

  • Elementary Enrollment Verification Form

  • These will now be sent home to families in the April 26 Thursday Folder.
  • They should be returned to you by May 1.

  • Elementary Senior Day
    • Wednesday, May 16 - 7:30 to 9:30 a.m.
    • There will be no change in date or time.
    • IF it conflicts with an AP exam, those students will have to choose. I know that is difficult. We try really hard to ensure that doesn't happen by putting this on all of your calendars a year in advance, but College Board sets AP dates.
    • It is way too difficult to find a reschedule date.

Requires Action

Final Evaluations

  • I am working on getting final evaluations scheduled with certified staff. Please make sure you update your growth plan with end of year comments for each action step before we meet. Also remember to change your action steps to show "finished." That way we can print and sign when we do your final evaluation. Thank you!
