Family Conferences are coming up soon! Conferences are on April 12 and 13. April 12th students are dismissed at 11:30 and conferences are from 5:00-8:00. April 13th is no school for students and conferences are from 1:00-8:00. Then there is no school on Friday April 14 and Monday April 17th. PARCC Testing Right after Spring Break, beginning April 5th our 3rd, 4th and 5th graders will be taking their PARCC tests. This is an assessment that is required through the federal government. Our students will take 4 math sessions and 3 ELA sessions. We need to finish these assessments before 4/28 including make ups. The month is April is very chopped up. Please make sure your children are on time for school and unless that have a fever or are really sick they should be at school. Completing make ups can be disruptive to your child’s and their teacher’s schedule, so the more tests they are here for, the easier it will be for everyone! Thank you for your help. ___________________________________

Buddy Benches We will have a dedication assembly on April 12th at 10:00 to dedicate two Buddy Benches that the PTA generously purchased for us! These benches will be a place for a student to go if they are having a bad day and want someone to help them to feel better and to be included. We are going to have a K-2 student and a 3-5 student represented during the assembly. Students that want to be part of it will take part in a writing contest about being a good friend. The winner from each group will be announced after Spring Break. The writing is due no later than Friday March 24th. No late submissions will be allowed.
