This week is our busiest week for the FSA. Monday and Tuesday the 7th grade math classes and 8th grade English language arts classes will be testing beginning first thing in the morning. Testing will continue all day. Wednesday and Thursday the 3rd graders will take their math assessment. This will be in the morning in the computer lab - a first for them! Thursday and Friday the 7th graders will take the English language arts FSA. Because we have more students than computers in the computer labs, there will be two sessions so testing will last all morning. Please encourage the students to do their best. The seventh grade assessment scores affect entrance into the high school programs they may want to pursue.
This past week we recognized four teachers for their outstanding work with our students. They are Ms. Farmer in middle school social studies, Ms. Lopez in 1st grade, Ms. Garabedian in 3rd grade, and Mr. Thomason, IT Coordinator who also helps with the technology classes. A special thank you to these teachers for the guidance and care they give and learning they impart to their students.
Wednesday the kindergarten class will present Winnie the Pooh at the Glenridge Performing Arts Theatre. Tickets are $10.00 per person, available at school or at the door. The show starts at 6:00 PM and all seats are reserved. Students wearing microphones should arrive at the theater by 5:00 PM and all others by 5:30 PM. (Students will bring home a memo tomorrow identifying those with microphones.) They will be at the Glenridge during the day for their final rehearsal, returning to school about 1:30. When you get your program for the evening, you will notice a QR code near the front of the book. If you have the app on your phone, you will be able to download the program in color. Thanks to Mr. Thomason and the digital arts classes for designing the programs this year.
We are still accepting applications for summer camp. If you need a form, one is available on the website or in the office.
The next Governing Board meeting will be Thursday, April 27. We had to move it because of conflicts with the testing schedule.
Have a wonderful week.
