Special activities with your child

April brings end of year assessments. Depending on your child’s grade level they will be taking an assessment in reading and math (science too, for 5th graders) to evaluate what their academic growth and achievement has been for the 2018-2019 school year. Results will be available for school based assessments by mid May and for state assessments we expect information by mid-June. Stay tuned!

Parent Teacher conferences were hosted March 20th and 21st. Over 80% of our children had a conference to review progress and plan for the upcoming weeks. The students and teachers appreciate having parents and guardians come in to learn and support the children’s education and learn about their progress.

March is Reading month. During the month children participated in D.E.A.R. – Drop everything and read, Dr. Seuss spirit week, we had our second Book Fair of the year and a Character Day Parade. The children dressed up as a favorite character and we had many wonderful creative costumes. Many families came to watch the parade as it went by.

Black History Assemblies were well attended by families. The children participated in singing songs and reading selections from historical African American figures in history. Thank you for supporting the children in learning about their cultural history.
