🗓 Coming Up!
Isn't it wonderful to have more daylight? Spring (well for Alaska) still means that we have snow and puddles everywhere. Please make sure your students have the appropriate winter gear here at school. Thank you for your help with this.
We have several upcoming events for the month of April coming up. Students in grades 3-8 will begin their state testing. Students in 5th -8th grade will take the science test on April 28th and April 29th.
The following week all students will be tested. Below is the schedule:
April 3 - English/Language Arts - 5th-8th Grade
April 4 - Math - 5th-8th grade
April 5 - English/Language Arts - 3rd-4th grade
April 6 - Math - 3rd-4th grade
We will have make-up testing the following week. Please help your child arrive at school on time, have a good night's sleep, and a hearty breakfast.
Parking Lots Volunteers Needed - Would you be willing to help in the front parking lot from 8:05-8:15 am? We have had a few parents see that after the first bell rings that it safety is an issue as some cars vehicles are going fast and not stopping for the students trying to go across the cross-walk. Would you be willing to help monitor the parking lot and help. Please let Mrs. Duff know if you are interested in helping at email@example.com.
