Week of April 30

Tis the season for End of Year State Testing! This week, our fifth and sixth graders will begin their testing.

Below are some testing reminders…

  • Be at school on time, every day! Students that arrive after testing has begun will NOT be admitted to class. Strive to be at school by 8:10am each day.
  • Get a good night’s sleep. Go to bed early so that you are well rested for your test.
  • Eat a healthy breakfast. You want to be at your best for the test!
  • Grades 5 – 6 will begin CAASPP testing this week!
  • Grades 3 – 4 begin CAASPP testing on May 9


CAASPP Testing (Grades 3 – 6) is rapidly approaching! Portions of the test require headphones. While we have headphones available for students, many students are more comfortable using their own headphones. If your child has a pair of headphones that they can bring to school (and leave until after testing), please send the headphones to school in a zip-lock bag with your child’s name on the bag. Your child should give the headphones to their teacher. If your child does not have headphones, they will be provided. Thank you!


Collaboration Schedule for this week. Please send your child with appropriate PE shoes!

Monday – Prep AM/5th PM

Tuesday – Kinder AM/6th PM

Wednesday – 2nd AM/1st PM

Jump Rope For Heart will be on Thursday, May 3 from 1:45pm – 2:30pm. Come join the staff and students as they jump to help their heart health!

Students took home packets with information last week. Please make sure student name, teacher name, and room number are written clearly on any coupons returned! This helps ensure that students receive their correct prizes. Money will be collected through Wednesday, May 9.

PARENTS! We are looking for donations of water and juice for the event. If you are able to donate, please bring the items to Ms. Herrera, room 802. Students are encouraged to bring their own water bottles to the event.


Yearbook Orders will be sent home this week! Complete the form and return form and payment by May 14.

  • Pull all the way forward when picking up your child.
  • Students should not be inside the school in the mornings. When students arrive they should either be going into the cafeteria to get breakfast or going directly to the lunch arbor to wait until the 8:10am bell rings. Students that eat breakfast, should be in the cafeteria and then be waiting at the lunch tables.
  • Students/parents should not be waiting outside of classrooms until the first bell rings at 8:10am. Please wait with your child at the lunch tables and/or have your child wait at the lunch tables until the first bell rings at 8:10am.
