A Note from Mrs. Grant

I hope all families had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year! It’s 2020! I am excited to be back and see all the wonderful students smiling faces once again.

This week we will have MAP testing on Tuesday and Wednesday. On Tuesday, we will have the Reading MAP test beginning at 8:30am. On Wednesday, we will have the Math MAP test beginning at 9:30am. Please make sure each student is well rested and has a good breakfast on that day so they will be ready to show us their best work!

Please remember to check the list for your child’s week to be our Snack Shack managers. Snack Shack is back for 2020! This week I am the manager so I will bring in the snacks and choose two students to sell them at lunch. Please remember to check the schedule I sent home in December. Thank you for your support!         

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!
