News for the week of May 14, 2018

We started the M-Step this week. I think the students handled it really well and worked hard to do their best. This week we took the ELA test which was a ton of reading and some writing (typing). Next week we take the math portion of the M-Step. We are planning on doing this Tuesday, May 22. If we need to, we will also test on Wednesday, depending on how long the test takes on Tuesday.

Some reminders for the upcoming week:  Library on Monday (remember those books), and Memorial Day program on Friday, May 25. The program starts at 9:30 and the run will follow the program. Everything should be wrapped up around 11:30. Third graders need to wear a red shirt that day!

Lastly, a note is coming home today regarding an upcoming field trip on June 1. We need to collect $4.00 from everyone and we will need some help field trip day, so please send in the bottom of the note if you are interested in helping!

Have a great weekend!

So next week we start the M-Step!! We have been working hard to prepare for the test and we are ready!! Testing will start on Tuesday, May 15 at about 9:00 and we hope to be done testing by noon. We will test again on Wednesday and possibly Thursday, depending on the length of the test. If we feel it is too long, we will break it up and test on Thursday, but we really won’t know that until the test starts. The following week we will follow the same schedule of testing on Tuesday and Wednesday. Please help your child be ready for the test with some good sleep the night before and a healthy breakfast the day of the test. Also, we are really working hard to not stress about this test so please help relieve any stress as well. It’s just a test!!!

Remember we have library on Monday so bring library books back to school!!

Have a great weekend!

Star Student – Paiten

Paiten was our star student this week. We learned her favorite color is pink, her favorite book is Junie B. Jones, her favorite food is salad, and her favorite animal is a cat. She likes to play Mario and enjoys art at school. We enjoyed getting to know Paiten better this week.

I think we may have finally turned the corner for some spring weather!!! The kids and honestly, myself included, have been waiting patiently….and sometimes not so patiently!!!

Just a heads up that our library time for THIS WEEK ONLY has been changed to Monday. It will probably change again once the fourth grade starts M-Step testing. I will certainly keep you updated as changes happen.

Have a great weekend!!!
