Principal’s PlaceApril 13, 2015
Next week we finish up our STAAR testing for the year with 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades taking some portion of the test. Since there will be multiple grade levels testing Monday through Wednesday, we will have small group testing all around the building. As a result, we will have closed lunch Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, April 20-22; parents will not be able to eat lunch with their child. We will have make-up testing on Thursday though we usually do not have many students absent during the regular testing days.
We have a prediction of rain each day this week (though the sun is shining now). Our floors get quite slippery when wet particularly for those wearing the rubber rain boots. Please make sure you and your child wipe your feet thoroughly on the interior mats at each entrance. We don’t want to see anyone hurt by falling.
Three cheers to our 3rd Grade Odyssey of the Mind team who placed 2nd in their division at the State finals. This team now advances on to the World Competition in East Lansing Michigan in May. Congratulations to these students:
Mary Sydnor Duffy, Nicholas Hanson and Kate Jeong (Ms. Hyvl's class)
Lucy Ginzel and Neela Ravi (Mrs. Morton's class)
Andrew Nanna and Nathan Giang (Ms. McLamb's class)
We are proud of these children and their great accomplishment! Thanks our coaches Christina Hanson, Maria Duffy, Annie Ginzel who did a super job with this team. Well done!
Have a stupendous week!
John T. Threet, Principal
