  1. Gym Day is every Wednesday so please make sure your child is dressed in his/her gym uniform. Please be sure your child is wearing the correct shoes/uniform attire everyday as I have been noticing many violations during the month of September/October. 

WELCOME BACK! We will be starting State Test prep during the month of January and continue until March when the state test is scheduled.  Please be sure your child is completing all homework assignments in order to make sure they are practicing the skills learned in class at home. 

To All Grade 6 & 7 Parents/Guardians 

I have not received all the money for the Test Prep Books.  I was hoping to order them this evening so we would have them by the end of next week.  If you have not sent in the money by TOMORROW with your child,  I will be ordering the books and your child will not receive a book and they will fall very behind the rest of the students.  Please review the following form that I have posted for the link to the read the research about this program.  – Test Prep Book Request
