Teacher Message   NWEA testing is done.  The class will finish M-STEP in the first week of May.  The students are doing a great job. Their hard work is showing in their scores. I am busy getting together a summer packet for the class. The packet will consist mostly of math and writing prompts. I will also send home a suggested reading list for the summer. At home students can review math concepts using Khan Academy. There are plenty of videos on this website for math.

Warm Weather- The students are allowed to bring in water bottles. Please make sure your child has a water bottle to stay hydrated. Sunscreen can be brought to school and left in their lockers.  Please make sure your child had a coat to wear seeing as the weather is unpredictable.
