Note From The Principal's Desk

Happy Friday!

The weather appears to have made a turn for the nicer and we finished ISTEP today – what a great Friday! We had a great week here and I am sure that everyone is glad that we have finished our ISTEP testing for the school year! Although testing is finished, we still have four weeks left of school and lots of learning left to do! Keep checking Jupiter for updates on your child’s grades and progress so that we can end the school year and the fourth quarter strong! In the coming weeks we will do our final NWEA assessment and are excited to see how much each child has grown this year! Have a great weekend and we will see everyone on Monday!
