Robin Williams once said, Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s Party!”
Spring is upon us, and that means:
• State testing is done. 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students have completed the PARCC and CMAS assessments. All students have worked hard throughout the school year and gave their best effort to show what they know. I applaud you all.
• As the school year winds down, teachers and staff are working extremely hard to make the grade transitions as easy as possible. Students can do the same by finishing the year academically strong. We are in session until June 1st and will be teaching bell to bell through that day. Soon, we will be posting and sending home summer reading lists and resources to keep the learning going throughout the summer.
• Volunteer opportunities are plentiful. I encourage you to go on a field trip, help with Spring Clean-up, “participate” in Field Day, come to a SIPTA meeting, or volunteer in the school. We always appreciate the extra help.
To this point, it has been a great school year. Through the continued work of students, effort from teachers and staff, and support from parents and community, we will end the school year as we started, motivated and excited to learn.
