An Update from the Bear Den
The students and staff have been working hard to get ready for that winter FAST testing session. This is a time for all schools in Iowa to measure the progress our students have made in reading and math since we started this fall. Ask your child if he/she has done any of the testing sessions yet. Classroom teachers will more than likely share your child's results with you in their 2nd quarter report card.

Valentine's Day Classroom Celebrations
All Valentine's Day celebrations will be held Friday, February 12th. However, all students that wish to exchange Valentine's Day cards with others, will need to bring their cards to school no later than Friday, February 5th. This will allow us to safely exchange the cards on the 12th. Once again, your child's teacher will be sending details home with your child soon.
