Nuts and Bolts:

  • Outdoor lunch: As the weather warms up, we'll be eating lunch outside. Please remind your student to bring a warm layer to school every day.
  •  SBAC Testing: Standardized testing begins in 3rd grade. Beginning the last week of April, 3rd grade wil be taking the SBAC. This is an important test for measuring progress, especially after the last few years of interrupted school. I will send more information soon, but in the meantime, our class has been talking about minimizing screen time at home, getting lots of fresh air, and getting lots of rest. Thanks for your help preparing your student!
