Dear Parents/Guardians of second and fifth grade students:

We need additional information on the academic needs and performance of individual students

in order to provide instruction at the appropriate level for each child. We are continuing our

screening for the high ability program and depending on the information needed your second

or fifth grade child may be administered a standardized test during November. Parents of

students who qualify for the program will receive a ParentSquare message by the end of May.

If you have any questions regarding testing, please contact Kim Jovic at

Reading Round Up

To help us celebrate the end of the first quarter of school, we would like to invite you to Reading Round Up Family Night. All students have been participating in Reading Round Up where they have been listening to and talking about many, many books. This will also be an opportunity for you to shop at the Book Fair. There will be food, crafts, and story reading.

When: Thursday, October 27th

Time: 5:30-7:00

Please feel free to bring a book to read together in the cafeteria. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Feel free to bring your own books!

As a bonus - staff and students may dress up as their favorite book character on Thursday, Oct 27th. This is NOT a Halloween costume day. If your child would like to participate, please help to make sure they are dressed as a book character.


Cyber safety

There has been an increase in conversations about shows our students are watching. We want to take this opportunity to remind parents about Cyber safety! We encourage parents to be aware of what their kids are watching, and talk to your children about what they are seeing. You can also have discussions with friends, family, neighbors, and church/community leaders about what their kids are watching, what apps they are using, and what to watch for. Here are some additional resources to help assist with this!


Media ratings and safety

For movies and TV shows, here are some of the ratings and what they mean.

G (general audience) is intended for all ages.

PG (parental guidance) is media that requires parent guidance due to some factors not being suitable for children.

PG-13 Is media that parents strongly cautioned, and is intended for ages 13 years or older.

R is restricted to anyone under 17 and requires an accompanying adult due to the adult materials in the film (harsh language, violence, nudity, etc)

For video games, the ratings slightly differ. Here are the ratings:

E (Everyone) the game is intended for all ages.

T (Teen) the game is intended for those 13 and up.

M (Mature) the game is for audiences 17 and older due to adult content.

Ask for help with parental controls if you are interested in limiting access to content for your student.
