Happy Earth Day!
We hope to see you at skate night TONIGHT
Classic Fun Center - Layton - 5:00 - 8:00 pm.
We are in the final stretch of the school year with no more breaks until Monday, May 30, for Memorial Day. Although the end of the year is approaching please know, KIDS ARE STILL LEARNING - in fact, the last few weeks of school are some of the most critical days of school for gathering data to determine what your kids learned and what we still need to teach. The data is also extremely helpful for us to know where to focus our efforts next school year.
End of year testing will begin the first of May and will include ESGI and KEEP (kindergarten), Imagine Learning Reading and Math (K-6), Galileo (1st - 6th), Acadience reading and math (K-6), and RISE (3rd - 6th). It is ESSENTIAL that your kids attend school, on time, well rested and well fed during testing.
DRESS CODE REMINDERS
- BLUE BOTTOMS are not a thing - the colors for bottoms are, and ALWAYS HAVE BEEN, black or tan.
- Shoes MUST be closed toe - sandals are cute but toes are exposed and can get smooshed.
Please keep up on your emails and social media if possible as these are the first methods of communication with parents.
Have a terrific weekend!

Visible Learning - DETERMINATION
DETERMINATION teaches students to "OVERCOME OBSTACLES IN ORDER TO REACH MY GOAL.
Practice these "I WILL" statements with your student:
- Set the right goals
- Get moving
- Face challenges
- Not be discouraged by failure
- Keep trying
Our mission is to empower students to take ownership of their own learning. By learning, practicing and embracing these visible learning traits, students will have the skills needed to become accountable for their own lifelong learning.
