Due to Field Day, weekly testing will be on Thrusday

Next week is the last week of testing.

I finished up GKIDS last week and this week we will review for our Student Growth Assessment (SGA). At the beginning of the year I gave your student a benchmark test over some of the standards they were to learn this year. Now I will give that same test to see how much academic growth they made.

Field Day is Friday

This is always such a great day. . . keep your fingers crossed for good weather! Please come out and join in on the fun. It is an all day event and you can stay for the entire day or any part of the day.


  • Please put sunscreen on your child. If you want us to reapply at lunch, please send in a note along with the sunscreen you want us to use.
  • Tennis shoes and shorts are the most comfortable
  • I encourage everyone to bring a water bottle.

Please let me know if you can come and join us for field day. We would love to have you.
