April Newsletter

From the Teacher
Spring NWEA testing begins April 18th. During this time, please make sure your child has a regular sleep schedule and is getting a sufficient amount of sleep. Also, make sure your child has a hearty breakfast with protein to help them stay awake and think clearly. Thank you!!! If your child cannot make it to one of these times, please let me know, so I can have him/her rescheduled.

The science fair is April 24th. This is not required for the middle schoolers, however each student that participates will receive ten extra points/tickets. (They are also able to use a STEM activity that they have completed).
