Greetings! It appears as if spring might finally be here!
I hope the recent vacation was a safe and enjoyable one for all the members of your family.
Our amazing P.T.O. is organizing a School Garden Clean-Up activity to coincide with the city’s “Day in the Dirt” events taking place this coming Saturday, April 30th. If you can join us with tools and work gloves from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (or even a part of that) tomorrow, that would wonderful, as we prepare our school gardens and orchard for the new growing season.
We are now in the final weeks of the 2015-16 school year and are already preparing for next year, as well. The student placement process is underway, and parents/guardians will be notified in June of their children’s classroom assignments.
Our Grade 4 students have completed their Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (S.B.A.C.) tests in Math and Literacy, and Grade 5 students are in the process of taking these tests. The testing window for Grade 3 students opens on May 9th. If you have any questions about these tests—which are taken by students across the state—please do not hesitate to contact me for more information.
Please review the calendar for other upcoming school activities and events.
Thanks for all you are doing to make our school community one of safety, respect, and responsibility for all who come through our doors.
