Time flies when you're having fun.  Hard to believe we are in the month of May already and in the home stretch of the 2013-14 school year. We recently wrapped up ISTEP+ testing and are busy learning information that students will need for next year and their future:  LEARN TODAY TO EXCEL TOMORROW.  We will begin our next round of extended days on Monday, May 12- Monday, May 19 -- see document in the News and Announcements section at the top.  Please continue to stress the importance of good attendance and having a good work ethic to your student.  We appreciate being able to work together to help your child be the best he/she can be.

The Wellness Committee met on April 27, 2011, and formulated a policy addressing treats for classroom celebrations. The policy states:

“For the safety of all children, all treats furnished for students, including birthday treats, must be commercially purchased. These treats should be kept simple and in a form that is easy to pass out to students in the class.”
