Welcome to April; it has been a long winter and finally, the spring season has arrived. This will be a busy month with many school events taking place. On April 3rd and 4th, our students in Grade 6 will get the opportunity to visit the Buehler Science Center with their teacher Mr. Gaydos. The students will participate in a simulated trip to Mars, in learning about the planets and our solar system.
The annual, state mandated PARCC testing will start the week of April 16th for students in Grades 3-6 and will continue through the month into May 2018. It is important to make sure that your children are best prepared for the test by getting a good night's sleep and breakfast during their testing time.
Please be aware that the end of the 3rd Marking Period will be on April 17th with Progress Reports posted on the districts Parent Portal the following week.
As always, if you should have any questions, please contact my office.
