Weekly Update April 25
K-8 Families-- This week needs to start with a big "THANK YOU" for last week! Last week we had state testing for the 3rd-8th graders. Although we have a few students who have some make-up testing, it is great to have those out of the way. Thank you to all of our students who gave a great effort, thank you to you at home for making sure they were ready to go each morning, and thank you to all our staff who help prep the students and put in a lot of time behind the scenes to get ready for the testing.
We still have iReady and FAST testing yet to complete so it would be great if you help keep your students engaged and ready to finish the year out strong!
