MAP testing begins this week. We will be testing all week long for the first two hours of the day. Please make sure that kids' Chromebooks are charged and ready to go all day. Kids should also have a book to read once the testing is done for the day since they will not be able to use their computers for work during the testing period. Snacks are permitted as long as they are not messy.
Our PE department is putting on a special program. Here are the details:
This year on April 22nd the PE department will be sponsoring Hats for Heart. Like last year, students will be able to wear a hat with $1 or more donation. We will also have the prize raffle for students who make a donation. This year we have expanded ways for students to get involved. Attached is the flyer about this year's event. Some additions are the sale of t-shirts, wrist bands, add hearts to add to our heart wall. Students will be able to enter a jump rope contest during their lunch. We are asking that you send home an electronic copy with your team parent communication.
Many of you supported the cause last year and we thank you! We would like to offer pre-sales of the t-shirt for $10. The sign up sheet will be in the teacher's work room along with an example of the t-shirt. They will be delivered early so you can wear it on April 22nd. We will also have the hearts for the heart wall available if you would like to honor or remember someone affected by a heart condition. This cause became personal for me as I tried to get my dad through an aortic valve replacement with several complications this year.
Grades will be coming home this week. This is a progress report. There are seven weeks left in the school year and kids will get permanent grades with the May report card. There is still plenty of time for the kids to bring up grades, if necessary.
