Our third day of gardening will take place at 3:30 tomorrow after school!  All are welcome to join us!  Bring your gardening tools and your energy and meet us at the gazebo. 
Tomorrow, Monday, May 8 starts PARCC testing for our 5th-grade students.  Please feel free to send in sugarless gum or assorted mints for your child to consume during testing. Of course, we will also have a supply on hand for students who forget.
Additionally, for all ELA tests, students will be required to use headphones as there are short videos to watch and respond to. Students are welcome to bring in their own headphones or borrow a pair from school. Headphones may not be wireless as they will not work with PARCC. All school headphones are cleaned with alcohol pads after each use.
5th graders are testing Monday, May 8 through Thursday, May 11
Please be diligent about getting your child to school on time during testing weeks (and every day!)
