Congratulations to our 3rd and 4th graders for their performance of School House Rock last Monday. The amazing thing is when I asked them later about interjections, adjectives, how a bill is passed, and the circulatory system, they could actually tell me! The advanced middle school chorus performed Saturday morning at Inspire, the downtown arts festival and did an excellent job. There was also a display of the K-8 artwork Thank you to the students who gave up their Saturday morning and also to Mrs. Julie, Mrs. Quattro, and Mrs. Walter for their dedication and encouragement of our students. SAA was well-represented this past week!
Don't forget Annie is coming up next Monday, May 11 at the Glenridge Performing Arts Center. The students are working very hard to be ready with all of the dialogue and music to learn. You can get your tickets at school this week or at the door Monday. And don't forget to buy your tickets for Once Upon a Mattress, to be performed by the middle school students at the Players Theatre on Friday, May 22. Once Upon a Mattress is a full-length Broadway musical. Even though Annie is a fifth grade performance and Once Upon a Mattress is a middle school performance, we hope parents of students at every grade level will attend to support these students.
Fifth graders need to return their permission slips for Thursday's performance at Venetian Gardens!
We are in the last weeks of testing. Eight grade tests today on FCAT Science (the last of the FCAT tests). The sixth and seventh graders will have their FSA Science tests on Wednesday of this week. Next week will be the Algebra EOC and Civics EOC. Then we're done!
Please continue to return the final enrollment papers for next year. I need a definite count so I can begin scheduling the classes and teachers for next year.
The Ice Cream truck will be here on Friday from 2:30 - 4:00. All treats are $.50 to $1.50. Because of the time constraints, students will be allowed to buy ONE treat each. We're going to do a schedule so we can avoid the traffic jam in the carline at 4:00.
Thursday is the last Governing Board meeting of the school year It is at 8:00 in the administrative office.
Have a great week!
