Cypress Woods Elementary

May/June Updates

Message From Mrs. Hill

Hello Eagle Families,


Congratulations are in order for our 3rd and 4th-grade students who have finished up their FSA testing. This week, 5th-grade students will be taking their Science FSA sessions, and a few 3rd- 5th-grade students will be working through make-up sessions. Our state testing will come to an end on Friday, May 28th. We thank you for your support during this time. It was important for us all to work together to create the best environment so that our students could 'show off' on these assessments.


Beginning today, we will be asking all of our Cypress Woods families to take a few minutes to complete our annual stakeholder survey. You will receive an email directly from k12 Insight with the survey link. This week, the link will also be on our school website and shared periodically via Peachjar and directly from our school. We appreciate your engagement in this survey. Feedback from you provides good information as we close this year and plan for next year.


Lastly, don't forget this weekend is Memorial Day weekend and school will be closed next Monday, May 31st. I hope all of you enjoy a restful, fun holiday weekend! Summer is so close!!


Mrs. Hill :)
