This coming week is our ELA test on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Please make sure that your child:


  • Goes to bed early
  • Has a healthy breakfast
  • Has a snack



Thank you to all of the families that participated in PARP! It is such a wonderful event and we appreciate your support of reading.

Due to our NYS testing in April, we are taking a break from Word Work. We will let you know when we start up again.


PENCILS!! Please send in pencils! We have a shortage in the classroom. Thank you to the families that already did.

Schedule changes for the week

Since we are testing in ELA this week, we will be focusing primarily on math in the afternoons and also plugging away on our Revolutionary War books.


Also, since the test is now untimed, it will be a learning year for us. We won't be doing as much science and social studies, but will fit it in when we can.
