The Computer Lap has been blocked off or 1/29, and 2/1-2/19 (with many days off in between). A rough schedule for the classroom teachers the testing affects closer to the testing period will be provided. Please discuss any questions with your supporting ESL teacher.

Morning Meeting Focus: RESPONSIBLE, RESPECTFUL, SAFE

As we discussed during December's Early Release Day it is important we reestablish expectations and reinforce positive behaviors as we did in the beginning of the year.
