The Leprechauns Played Tricks on ELC

On St. Patrick's Day, across the ELC, in the Day Care,the Leprechauns snuck in and out of classrooms. Some left notes, some made messes, a lot of them left confetti in the shapes of shamrocks, pots of gold, and yes some even left candy. Our tricky 3,4,5 year olds tried to catch them but those Leprechauns are really sneaky! Hope everyone enjoyed being a little Irish this week!

Decision about Assessments

Mr. Broten is meeting with the reading team, Mrs. Cowling, and myself next week to look at the use of PALS. He has already met with the 4K teachers to get their input, and we will be looking to make decisions soon as we would need to order the tests we plan to use.

Congratulations to Mrs. Melanie Cowling
