A message from Principal Lowndes

Happy October to you! I know it has been a challenging last two weeks with MAP testing. I appreciate our staff and you for doing all you could do to test. Your homeroom teacher will be emailing your student(s)' MAP test results within the week. We need you to return to the focus of attending class connects, WINs (if invited) , Learner Conferences (if invited), and completing OMS and any other assignments. Remember your first benchmark tests are opening next Tuesday, after our Columbus Day holiday. We can do this and know we are virtually cheering you on! RISE UP!
