Spring has finally made it, and I am hoping it is not as eventful as Old Man Winter. I feel fortunate that students were in school most of the days, and we are still getting Spring Break and Graduation when initially approved by the calendar committee. Most districts have anywhere from 15 to 30 missed days to make up, and some are well into June before Graduation. Our graduation date is May 16th.
We are counting down the days until state testing. This always creates anxiety among the staff, as we want every student to perform to his/her capabillities. Teachers and staff are asking that your child get plenty of rest and eath a healthy breakfast on testing days. It is very hard to concentrate if you are tired and/or hungry.
We are anticipating moving 6th graders to the high school next year, and will have another open forum on Tuesday, April 8th at 5:00 PM. We welcome anyone who would like to address this matter, and then stay for our board meeting. Our monthly meetings have changed to 5:30 PM instead of 7:00 PM. Wehope this time is more convenient for attending than the previous time. In the winter, 7:00 PM seems so very late when darkness comes around 4:30 to 5:00.
I want to ecourage each of you to become a part of your child's education, and feel free to meet, talk, or even volunteer at one of the schools. Studies show that parents are the single most influence in their child's life, so I hope each of you will join us in preparing your child to become College and Career Ready.
