Important Notices ……


PARCC Testing begins this Tuesday for the 4th grade. Please make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep and a good breakfast on testing days.  There are morning and afternoon testing sessions.  In addition, make-up testing sessions will run after each week is finished.


Our healthy snack grant has run out of money for the school year and therefore will no longer be available.  We are very fortunate that we get this grant each year. We are the only school that gets this year after year. From this point forward we ask that if your child relied on that snack that you send them to school with a snack.


The Art Fundraiser pickup will be held on Wednesday, April 28, 2016 from 5-7PM in the school Cafeteria.


Please see attached picture about the Wide World Of Sports Summer programs. If some of our students go here in the summer our school can get money. A flyer will be coming home this week.


Please attached 2016-2017 school year calendar:


There will be a permission slip coming home for 4th graders on an Arbor Day related project for planting a tree in your family yard.
