  • Our class will be taking the M-STEP (Michigan's state standardized test) over the next 2 weeks. This week, we will test Tues. & Wed. To help your child be prepared to do their best, please make sure they get plenty of rest and eat breakfast. Thanks!

  • I mentioned last week, that our class has been selected by the Grosse Pointe Foundation for Public Education (GPFPE) to receive their "Caught in the Act of Giving Back" award for our class' efforts with Socktober!! The GPFPE will be presenting us with this award on Monday, May 23rd at the Board of Education meeting, @ 7:00 p.m. I would love to have as many of our families there as possible, as we receive our award! A separate flyer will be sent home today, so that your family can RSVP for the event. Please return the RSVP slip as soon as possible. This will help us in treat-planning, thanks in advance for you support! :)
