END OF YEAR NOTES
We are in our last weeks of the 2017-2018 school year. We have finished all MSTEP assessments and are currently working on NWEA testing. I am so proud of each child’s academic and social growth this year; and am confident that they will shine bright as they transition into sixth graders!

MAY/JUNE CHARACTER COUNTS – BEST ATTENDANCE
Congratulations to Dalton W. for winning April’s Character Counts!

FIELD DAY
Field Day is an all day event full of fun activities and yard games outside!  Please make sure to send your child in appropriate attire for the weather, and an extra change of clothes. There are a few activities that may involve getting wet! If your child wants to bring sunscreen to apply on themselves, that is fine, too. Water bottles are highly encouraged!
