A Note From Mrs. Roy

I hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend! Our students did an outstanding job on their MAP testing. Everyone was very focused, and the scores show it. I will be sharing these with you very soon. This week is the start of our 3rd quarter. Things will be getting a bit more difficult as they year continues, and I look forward to seeing each student step up to each challenge that is presented.

*Please note: many students are running low on pencils and glue. Please speak to your child about what supplies are needed and resupply as fitting for the second half of our school year. Thank you!
