A Note from the Principal
This month = "STRINGS" Strings stand for the tangible (things we can measure; food, sleep, clothing, activities) and intangible (integrity, kindness, respect, self-discipline) skills that ALL of our kids need to learn. Every adult in your child's web is responsible for helping to teach and monitor these strings. Are you an anchor in your child's web? If so, what tangible or intangible strings are you intentionally helping them learn? Who are the other anchors you have identified? Have you talked with them about the various strings/skills that you need their help teaching your child? #webup Our kids deserve strong webs!

ISTEP Testing Coming Soon
(Part 2 of ISTEP will take place after Spring Break, April 16th through May 4th)
Please remember these testing tips as we support our students:
1) 8-10 hours of sleep is recommended on days of testing.
2) Eating a healthy breakfast will help students to be alert and ready to test.
3) Encourage your students and remind them how great they are. This test does NOT define them!
