  • The insect projects looked so great and the students did an amazing job presenting their projects and answering questions from the class.

  • The only part left of the dibels assessment that I need to administer is the reading level. All scores will be sent home once it is all complete. Once again, if you would like the math scores please email me.

  • I am looking for volunteers to help me level books. I need people to come in starting at lunch and throughout the rest of the day. It is a process I can teach you in just a few minutes and you will only need to come in for 15 to 30 minutes at a time. Any help would be greatly appreciated so please let me know if you can help.

  • The LAST Scholastic Book Orders are due Wednesday, May 28. Thanks to the families that have ordered books throughout the year. All books bought give the class points and I am able to purchase great books and resources.

  • Library books are due every Tuesday.

  • There is no school on Monday, May 26 in observance of Memorial Day.

  • The last day of school for the students is Friday, June 13. There will be a schoolwide picnic that day. More information will be sent home soon.
