Congratulations to all of our Grade 3-8 students for their hard work during the Smarter Balance Test. This test continues for a few more weeks. I can attest to the fact that our students are concentrating and doing their best as they complete all the sections of the test.
I would like to commend all the teachers who proctor, give support and build the confidence of our students on a daily basis. In particular, I thank the 'testing team' of Mrs. McGovern, Mrs. Esposito and Mrs. Andrews for the daily set up and implementation of this challenging test. Testing is running smoothly thanks to the collaboration and cooperation of all.
Thank you, parents, for all you have done this year, day after day, to support your students' learning.I hope many of you were able to attend some of the many activities we have had this school year. I have seen the children grow in self-confidence and in the ability to present, and in some cases, perform in front of a large audience. Bravo!
The next few weeks will fly by ever so quickly. Please check our website calendar regularly for information on class trips, student performances and end of the year concerts. Our students have worked very hard on these special events.
On Friday, May 29th, we will have Rise & Shine followed by a day of Town Meetings to experience the learning of our 4th quarter unit of study, Around the World in 60 Days. We are looking forward to celebrating the ways in which our students, across the grade levels, have investigated specific countries and cultures of the past and present while building an appreciation for diversity and pride in cultural traditions.
Town Meetings will take place at the following times:
WE DO HOPE YOU WILL JOIN US!
