DDA Testing

We will cotinue our DDA Testing for the second nine weeks on Monday and Tuesday. We will be taking the test online for Reading on Monday and Math on Tuesday. Please make sure your child is well rested, eats a heathly breakfast, and is at school on time. They are prepared and ready! I am excited for each child to show what they have learned during this quarter.

We had a great time on our class Field Trip to the Heritage Center!

Thank you for allowing your child to participate in The Holiday Gift Shop! They had such fun picking out presents for their family and loved ones. Also, thank you to all the parents that helped students shop this week! I know Mrs. Makely, Mrs. McDowell, and Mrs. Duffy all helped.
