March 11-15


Good morning.

Hopefully everyone was able to enjoy their weekend ; Spring is definitely in the air. Hopefully winter is moving out! We all know as the weather improves, students become more rambunctious . Please make sure to be vigilant with supervision. Two weeks to Spring Break. We've got this!

On Wednesday Christy will be doing a new state software training at 2:45 for about 15 minutes. When she is finished, I am going to give you time to meet in subject areas. I was hoping you may be able to look at the information provided in the newsletter regarding testing and have some discussion about it.

STEM Night will be next Tuesday. I hope everyone will be able to make it. The fifth and sixth grade basket looks great!

Pro-Core Testing will be next week. The results from A to B test were impressive. I am looking forward to seeing the C results. You're doing great things in the classroom and it shows.

Have a great week!

Aim High and Dream Big!!
