A message from Principal Fausey-Riley

Dear Minges Brook Families,

The children have loved finally enjoying summer weather at recess this week! Next week, the forecast is back in the upper 60s and 70s. Please dress your students accordingly.


We have one more week of NWEA testing. The children have been trying their best to score in a range that shows how much they learned this year. Thank you for having them rested and ready to show how well they can do.


We had an unexpected visitor in the school today in the form of a beautiful bird. Ask your student about this!


Have a great weekend and thank you for choosing Minges Brook!

Heather
