Happy New Year!! In addition to welcoming in the new year, we have also welcomed the 2nd semester. We are over halfway through the school year. The second half of the year is always a busy one as students participate in state-wide testing (ISTEP+, IREAD3) and are busy learning skills that will prepare them for the next year. We also have some very exciting and fun activities planned in the second half of the year. Please see important dates listed below and follow the newsletter to join in some Handley fun!
**Please keep the following dates in mind if planning doctor appointments or trips. It is crucial that students are present for state testing. THANK YOU!
