April 2017  

Dear Parents/Guardians:


The Grade 3 – 5 Math State assessments are scheduled for May 2 through and including May 4, 2017.  The Grade 4 Science State assessment is scheduled for May 24 and 25th (manipulative portion) and on June 5th (objective portion).  It is important that the youngsters come in well rested for these exams.  As you know, students have been working with their teachers throughout the year and are well prepared for these exams.

Please also be aware that during the State testing all classroom teachers will not be proctoring in their own classroom and with their own students.  All teachers will be assigned to, and proctoring for, a different classroom for the duration of the testing period.

The School Budget Vote is quickly approaching (May 16, 2017).  Remember to stay informed regarding the budget and to exercise your right by voting!


Remember Spring means that students will usually be outdoors for recess.  Please make sure that you send your child to school in the morning (which can still be cool), appropriately dressed.
