New Kindergarten Meeting Information

In the December 18th newsletter, I shared information about the district Kindergarten Information Meeting. It will be held at at Muraski Elementary School on the evening of Thursday, January 28th, at 7:00 pm. Click here for more information.

Since that newsletter, the district has made progress by developing procedures for online Kindergarten registration. Information packets to guide you through online registration will be available in all elementary buildings no later than Tuesday, January 19th. In addition, the district now has an informational document that answers frequently asked questions about full-day kindergarten. You can visit the district website or click here for more information.

Testing Schedule

Testing is a hot topic right now. Our District leadership team has put together a testing program that attempts to balance effective use of instructional time, with progress monitoring to assess the effectiveness of our instructional programs and track student growth. As parents you have the right to know our plan. Click here to view the elementary second semester testing schedule. If you have questions about the schedule, or about testing in general, I invite you to contact me using the information below.
