Welcome home, 8th grade!

Teacher Appreciation Week

The first week of May is the "official" time to recognize our teachers for their hard work and dedication. You'll have the opportunity to post your thanks on a hall display, and we have a few other fun ways planned to help honor these wonderful teachers. Hugs and notes are welcome!

Summer Fun!

Mark your calendars and save the date! Vacation Bible School is planned for June 13-17, and we are adding the option of Extended Day Camp from 7:30 am-5:30pm.


VBS will run from 9am- noon. Students that are signed up for Extended Day Camp will stay for lunch and continue the fun all afternoon!

Watch for Registration information coming out soon! If you have questions, please contact Jodi Freshour.

End of Year Assessments

Students in Grades 3-8 will take some time next week to "show what they know" by taking their final MAP tests of the school year. MAP stands for "Measures of Academic Progress," and we are excited to see how far everyone has come in their goals for this school year!

Our Kindergarten through Gr 2 students will take their Math and Reading assessments the week of May 9.


The only preparation needed for these tests is a good night's sleep, a solid breakfast, and a a ready, willing and able outlook!

Preschool Family Night at Culvers, Mishawaka on May 9 from 5-8 pm! The teachers will be ready to serve you!
