Last Few Weeks of School

Our students worked hard to do their best on the FSA testing. For the next 2 weeks, we will be administering the STAR test, as the final progress monitoring measure for the year.

We will have our final SAC meeting of the year on Wednesday, June 2, at 4:00 PM via Zoom. The link will be sent through Parent Square prior to the meeting.

As we approach our last few weeks of school, lessons become more project based and less structured. Please remind your child to stay engaged during instruction and be kind to others. Also, as the June weather heats up, encourage your child to stay hydrated.

SAC Meeting This Wednesday, June 2, at 4:00 PM via Zoom.
