Happy end-of-a-busy-week, parents! Wow! What a week! Coming back from Spring Break and jumping into 3 days of testing and an early release day! Whew! I want y0u to know how incredibly proud I am of their hard work and tenacity during these days. I felt that all of our students put forth their very best effort and gave their all. We’ve intentionally kept the afternoons light to avoid the stress of added work and have opted for extra breaks, read aloud, and some fun review activities to ease the demands of the mornings. We’ll have one more day of testing on Tuesday for Social Studies and then we’ll be done! Yay! I am looking forward to resuming a normal schedule once MStep is behind us!
SUPER SPECIAL THANK YOU TO PHIL SAYERS, Grace’s dad, for bringing in a fun treat to end this week’s testing! Blizzards from Dairy Queen! What a sweet way to end 3 days of testing! Thank you so much for your generosity and helping us celebrate our hard work!!
