We are almost to the end of the school year. It has flown by!
The students have done an incredible job with all the testing and staying focused, thank you. We still have a few things to accomplish before the last day and need students here and ready to learn. Our 5th graders will be having several special events coming up to mark the end of their elementary school years.
Our Spring Concert will be held at the Palm Lake Christian Church next door on May 14th at 6:00 PM.
On May 19th we will be honored by the ST Math Corporation for FIRST Place in the video contest- Ms. Clutter, her class and Ms. Alfaro rocked it!
If you have a Kindergartener starting with us next year we will be hosting two orientation sessions on May 21st: 9:00 am and 5:00 pm. We hope you can join us!
Summer Bridge classes are filling fast. Be sure you have signed up if your child qualified. If you need assistance, please call the school and our DMT, Ms. Warner, will assist you. We want to keep the continuity of learning throughout the summer.
If you checked out a Title I laptop computer please be sure to return it for upgrades. You can drop it off in the front office or directly return it to Mr. Parr.
Please consider being a member of our PTA or School Advisory Council next year- we need YOU!
