    Next week, we will begin the new annual CAASPP testing, that is replacing the STAR testing.  Your student brought home a packet of pink papers on Monday, that should answer most of your questions, along with resources for additional information.  It also covers what you need to do if you do not want your child to participate in the testing.

    **Feel free to email me with any questions you may have.


    We are rapidly approaching the end of the school year.  We have 2 more field trips planned; Fog Willow Farms on May 22 from 10:45-2:45, and a pool party and lunch on June 2, from 10:00-2:00.  We will need drivers for Fog Willow Farms (located in Elk Grove, off Grant Line Road), and chaperones only for our pool party.  We plan to walk to Glen Oaks pool.

    Please let me know if you are available and willing to join us on either trip.


    Field Trips

    May:  Fog Willow Farms  $7

    June:  Pool Party  $10


    We are halfway through the trimester…can you believe it?  Your student has an AR progress report today, showing their progress towards their goal. They should be half way to their goal by now.

    Thank you for following up with them, praising those who are on track, and encouraging those who are not.


    Our promotion ceremony for the 5th grade will be held on Wednesday, June 3rd at 6 p.m. in the MP room.  We will have a few short speeches, followed by a slide show, and the distribution of promotion certificates. Cookies and punch will be available after the ceremony.


    If you are available to buy decorations, help decorate, acquire refreshments (we have a small budget, we don’t expect you to pay for them), please let me know.
