Terra Nova Testing

Next week we begin Terra Nova testing. We will test Tuesday-Friday, beginning at 9:00 each morning. Please encourage your child to get a good night's sleep, eat a healthy breakfast, and to be at school on time each morning. If you haven't already written a motivational note for your child, please do so and return it on Monday in the envelope provided.

*We will not have a spelling test next week due to testing, therefore, no spelling words were sent home today.

Book Orders

If you would still like to order from the book order that was sent home a couple of weeks ago, please fill out the form and return it by Monday, or order online at and use our class code: J2ZMM.

Take Your Child to Work Day

Permission slips went home today with students for Take Your Child to Work Day, which is on April 23rd. If you're planning on taking your child to work that day, a signed permission slip should be returned to school prior to April 23rd. Students will have to complete a homework assignment (given to them closer to the day) regarding their experience that day, in order for them not to be counted absent. This day is also early release day.                             

Variety Show

The deadline for students to turn in try out forms for this year's variety show is May 1st. Attached to my email, you will find the form as well as the scoring rubric for the tryout. Tryouts will be held on May 8th and the variety show will be the last day of school. Please let me know if you have any questions about this event.
