*A free sack lunch is provided by the cafeteria, or your student can bring lunch from home.
*We will be going to the park for lunch, so wearing closed toed shoes would be best.
*We will arrive back at Aikin around 1:30.
*Benchmark Testing - We will be taking benchmarks (like a practice STAAR test) on Friday, April 22 and Wednesday, April 27. It is incredibly important for your child to be at school these days.
