CHARACTER TRAIT OF THE MONTH: INTEGRITY
HELLO TIGER FAMILIES:
As we begin the month of May, I know the upcoming weeks will be busy and full of activities and events. I hope you get to enjoy as many as possible. With that being said, please remember that we still have one month of the school year remaining and teachers are still teaching new concepts and completing instruction. It is extremely important that students come to school every day, on time, and ready to learn.
Our students in grades 3-5 will be taking the state standardized tests beginning the week of May 8. Students WILL NOT be allowed to enter their classrooms if their class has begun testing. Please ensure that your child arrives at school on time. Late students will have an alternate setting and will need to make up their test on a different day.
We encourage you to talk with your child about the importance of doing their best on the test by using the strategies they have been using all year but also remind them that these tests do not define them or their abilities. We believe in every one of our students and know that they are capable of great things regardless of their performance on the state test.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher with any questions or concerns.
Our 90’s Dance Party, last week, was a huge hit. It was a fun filled event with lots of fun activities and performances. Thank you to SOPA and all our parent volunteers for their time and talents in organizing this event and making it a success.
I hope everyone had an opportunity to attend the Book Fair. Our library was “roaring” with excitement as students shopped around filling up their wishlist. Thank you to our Librarian, Ms. Sabrinna, our two retired teachers, Sarah and Sue, and all of our parent volunteers for organizing and making this a positive experience for our students. We could not have done it without you.
Thank you for your continued support and partnership in your child’s education.
