May Newsletter

NWEA
We are about halfway through NWEA right now. Most of our students have finished their math test. We only have a few left to go. In May, all of our students will be taking their reading NWEA. We are so proud of all of the students for how much they have grown in math. We are looking forward to seeing how much they grow in reading as well. We also have some special things planned for all students who have tried their best on the test!

Weather
As the season changes into spring, we are asking you to be mindful of the weather. It does get warm some days, but most mornings start out pretty cold. Please make sure your student still wears a coat or jacket every day to school. We will also make a judgement call on warmer days about the kids being able to take off their coats. If we feel it is not warm enough, then they will need to leave their coats on. We are hoping to see more of those warm days coming up!

Notes Home
Please make sure you are checking your child’s folder each day for notes coming home. As we get closer to the end of the year, many special things will be happening. There will be several notes coming home about end-of-the-year activities such as a field trip, Field Day, and other things. If you have any questions, please contact me.
