Dear Parents and Guardians,
During the week of April 7, our 2nd through 6th grade students will face the biggest academic challenge of this school year as they take the AIMS and Stanford-10 assessments. During this testing week, it is particularly important for all students to get plenty of rest, eat healthy and nutritious meals, and come to school motivated and on time. Please be sure to talk with your child about the importance of doing his/her very best on every portion of these tests. Your children have been working very hard all school year and this is their opportunity to shine. Our school goal is to improve on our “B” label, and the scores of every student will play a big part in our overall school score.
We had another strong demonstration of parent involvement at our third quarter Parent-Teacher Conferences. Our preliminary count shows that we had over 80% participation, and some teachers are still working to meet with parents who could not attend last week.
I would like to thank all of our parents and family members who took time to complete the Parent Survey. Your feedback is valuable to us as we continuously strive to improve as a school and district.
Teacher appreciation week is coming up May 5-9. Please take some time to complete the Staff Acknowledgment form so that we can share your positive comments with the teachers who work so hard to educate and support your children.
The school will be celebrating Absolutely Incredible Kid day on April 4. Teachers distributed Incredible Kid letterhead at conferences. We would like each student to receive a letter from a family member, sharing all of the great things you feel about him/her. Please return this to your child’s teacher in a sealed envelope and we will distribute these letters to the students on April 4 as part of our Incredible Kid celebration and our AIMS/SAT-10 pep rally.
