We are into the final leg of this school year! We are looking forward to finishing strong with a few weeks of instruction left, along with celebrations across grade levels and most notably our 5th grade promotion on June 7th. Please see the announcements below:
Playground Update: Playground construction is underway and moving along rapidly; the projected is expected to be completed by the second week of June.
PARCC Update: – We have just about completed our PARCC assessments. Our students did a fantastic job and we thank the community for the flexibility.
All school library books are due June 2. Overdue notices will be sent home soon; please help your child/children look for their overdue books. If a book cannot be found, please email Ms. Burton (firstname.lastname@example.org). The class with the fewest lost books by the end of the year will earn a popsicle and ice cream party. Each student who returns all of their books will be entered into a raffle to win two free movie tickets. Let's get those books back on the shelves!
As of the 2017-2018 school year, we will not accept teacher and/or student cohort requests from parents. When creating classes, we first consider a balance of gender, race and special education services, to have the highest level of diversity as possible. With about 400 students, it would be impossible to fulfill everyone¹s request while also maintaining transparency and the ideal level of diversity that we know supports future student success.
As a school, we have complete confidence in our dynamic teaching staff, as evidenced by our National Blue Ribbon Award, to make every classroom welcoming and engaging for all students. We also do our best to have multiple grade level events throughout the year, including recess everyday, for students to be able to interact with friends across classrooms. Please feel free to reach out to Principal Smith for further clarification.
