Celebrating Our 4th Graders & Mrs. Morris's Class!

Hooray for Mrs. Morris's third grade class! All students in her class raised their SRI score from winter to spring. If you see Mrs. Morris, her students, Mrs. Martin or Mrs. Klinkenberg, pat them on the back for their hard work!

Speaking of hard work, ALL 4th grade students scored above the 10th percentile on their Spring AIMSWeb RCBM assessment (timed reading test) which means more pats on the back for 4th grade, Mrs. Garrison, Mrs. King & Mrs. Martin!
