End of Year Testing

End-of-year testing is continuing to roll along. Our 3rd-5th graders are working on their language arts, math, and science tests. Our 1st and 2nd graders have just started, or about to start, their district assessments coupled with the Acadience state reading assessment. A million thanks for getting your kids to school rested and well-fed … we want them to show off all they have learned this year!

Changes in next year's teaching staff are as follows:

This is the time of year where we begin thinking about next year's teacher. Because in each setting (dual-immersion or traditional) there are usually two teachers available, I cannot accept specific teacher requests. However, if you do have information about your child that would be helpful for me in placing your child in the right class, please share with me (Mr. Johnson) during this month by sending me an email. I work closely with your child’s current teacher in this endeavor, and would welcome your input as well. It is significantly easier to know information now and place students accordingly; it is near impossible to make switches after registration.


Registration for next year has been underway since March. If you haven't had a chance to register your student for next year, please go to our school's website and click on the registration tab and follow the instructions. Thank you in advance for your donations that help provide field trips, assemblies, and school activities. The requested donation is $25 for each child and an additional $35 for those students in the dual language immersion classes. You are welcome to pay online or bring cash or a check into the front office.

Summer Reading Program

We will offer our summer reading program once again this year, but due to staff shortage over the summer, we will limit the class to the first 40 students who bring their slips of paper into the office. Please see flyer for details.
