A Note from Miss Geene

I hope every family was able to stay safe this past weekend! Our class will continue to keep those who were affected by Hurricane Florence in our prayers.

This week fifth and sixth grade will be busy completing our last MAP test! Please make sure your child gets to school on time, receives plenty of rest and has a good breakfast each day so they can focus during the testing. I know each fifth and sixth grade student will do their very best! Our last test will be given on Tuesday, September 18th.

Below is a list of the students who are on Honor Guard this week. If your student is participating, they must stay until the end. Please do not pick them up during car line unless I have been given a note. Thank you for your support!
