The March Bulletin is ready. A pdf format is here  03-11-13.pdf or you can read the plain text version below.

No School

March 29th and April 1st.

Early Out

March 28th we dismiss at 12:30 pm. The bus will run the normal routes. Please let anyone who transports your children know about the early dismissal.

Hoops for Heart

Thank you to all who supported the Hoops for Heart fundraiser. Our school raised $5053.78 for the American Heart Association.

Absence

We’d like to thank everyone for their patience while the bulletin has been absent. We missed the January and February issue but will be back on track for April and May.

CRT Testing

Monday was the first day of CRT State Testing for our 3rd through 8th grade students. The tests continue through the remainder of the week.

Even if your child is a good reader and writer, he may still have trouble when it comes to taking tests.

Preparing for tests, taking tests, and reviewing tests go hand in hand. Follow the tips below and your child will be on his way to test success.

Before the Test. Ask if your child’s school offers sample tests. They are a great way to practice for both standardized and regular classroom tests. Sample tests help children become familiar with directions and what the test will look like.

During the test. Your youngster should always read the material carefully before he begins. Directions are important. If you child doesn’t understand what to do, encourage him to ask the teacher to explain further.

After the test. Review the tests results with your child. Discuss what went right and wrong. For example, did he run out of time? Next time, he might try answering the easier ones first, such as multiple choice questions. (from Resources for Educators)

End of Quarter

3rd quarter ends on March 19th and report cards will be sent out shortly afterwards.

Just a reminder report cards will be held if there are any meal or library balances due. If your child does not bring a report card home on or after March 26th, please contact the school office.

Spring Fundraiser

We will announce the top sellers and prizes soon!

The orders will deliver to our school in approximately 4 weeks.
