MAP Testing

  • April 16th-24th--5th Grade MAP Testing
  • April 17th-25th--4th Grade MAP Testing
  • April 23rd-26--3rd Grade MAP Testing


The Missouri Assessment Program or “MAP Test” are assessments used in Missouri is designed to measure how well students acquire the skills and knowledge described in Missouri’s Learning Standards (MLS). The assessments yield information on academic achievement at the student, class, school, district and state levels. Assessments are administered to students in grades 3-5 online unless determined by an IEP/504 plan or otherwise noted.


Feel free to connect with your child's classroom teacher to get more specific information.

How to Draw Pokemon Characters

HOW TO DRAW POKEMON CHARACTERS with Mr. Todd WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3 (3:15-4:15pm) ONE HOUR CLASS AGES: 6-11 - $10 PER CHILD ALL MATERIALS INCLUDED Are you a parent who constantly has to listen to their children tell them about what Pokemon evolve into what other Pokemon and how rare a particular card is despite the fact your kid has twelve of them as well as every one of their friends? Do you want a break for an hour to try to forget everything you've ever learned about this game? Then this drawing class is for you! This class teaches two characters from the Pokemon series, and will be voted on by the children in class!

Please help us with traffic flow

Because of our location arrival and dismissal are challenging. There are a few things that can help:


  • No Parking Zones: Please observe designated No Parking zone on W Cedar heading away from Bristol. Cars parked here slow traffic flow and create an unsafe situation at the crosswalk. Thank You!
  • U-Turns: Please do not make U-Turns on Gray or in the intersection or Gray & Cedar during arrival or dismissal. This slows traffic flow and creates an unsafe situation at the crosswalk. Thank You!
  • Drop & Go: Please refrain from parking and exiting your vehicle during arrival & dismissal times. If you must park please pull all the way down Gray or park on a neighboring street.


Thank you!

What's for Breakfast & Lunch?

Find Breakfast and Lunch menus here: https://webster.nutrislice.com

Arrival Reminder

Just a friendly reminder that doors open at 8am and students should not arrive prior to 8am unless they are in a supervised club or adventure club. Thanks!

Allergies & Lunch Room Seating

To ensure the health and safety of all students during lunch, and to make sure everyone feels included, we provide tree nut & peanut free tables/seating on each side of the cafeteria. These tables are clearly marked. Please note that students who buy school lunches are allowed to sit at the peanut free tables. If your child brings a lunch from home and wants to sit at the peanut free table with a friend, they need to check with an adult to ensure their lunch doesn't contain any nuts.


Thank you!
