3rd Grade EOQ Testing

Our 3rd Quarter EOQ assessments will mimic the End-of-Grade test this quarter. We will have an administrator & proctor for each test site. As you do each quarter, remind students to be at a LEVEL 0 in the halls as testing sites are throughout the building. We have been successful this year of not using Kindergarten assistants or enhancement teachers during our 1st & 2nd quarter testing. This has helped maintain schedules. Due to the need of proctors this quarter, all/most available staff will be assisting with these assessments. There will not be art, music, P.E., E/I Lab, or media until all testing is complete. Please view the testing sites/locations/assignments for each day. Thank you for your understanding and support during these last two assessment quarters.

Happy Birthday to You!!!

Spring Break begins Friday, March 25th! Students will not return until Monday, April 4th. Friday, April 1st is an Optional Teacher Workday. Please rest and enjoy your much needed and deserved break!


It is hard to believe that we have less than 3 months left with our children! We are basically ready to begin our 4th quarter and time is ticking on giving students all they need instructionally and socially. Making the best use of every minute of everyday is critical at this stage of the game! Thank you for DOING YOUR BEST WORK TODAY!

Along these lines help demonstrate our urgency to our customers (students and parents) with our appearance. We should dress professionally everyday. Jeans are acceptable on Friday but please have them be school appropriate and worn with a nice school shirt. If you have a jean pass and use it to wear jeans any other day than Friday make sure you turn that pass into Rachel.

Don't forget to reinforce hard work and good behavior. Let's continue to recognize, and be recognized for the love and caring we show our kids. Don't forget to give out those PBIS tickets!

Thank you for making every day count.
