5th & 6th Grade Families,
We had another ten students achieve
their AR goals, bringing our total to
forty-three. Congratulations to Sackett
Chesnik, Darien Norris, Ben O’Rourke,
Ikechi Elendu, Julia Peterson, Dominic
Limone, Ponco Lopez, Jesse Burns,
David Lozano, and Brenden Floyd.
Students have until 3:15 on Friday to
make their third quarter AR goals.
Tomorrow is an early release day, so
students will be released at 12:40.
Daylight savings time begins this
weekend and so we will lose an hour
Saturday night.
Our TCAP testing starts next week,
Tuesday-Thursday, March 13-15 and
continues Tuesday-Thursday of the
following week, March 20-22. Please do
not schedule appointments on these
Please make sure your student gets a
good night’s sleep before the TCAP tests
and starts the day with a good breakfast.
We are extremely proud of how our
students have done in the past and we
know that their success begins at home.
We want to thank you in advance for
encouraging your student to do their best.
Mr. Bushta compiled a list of 6th
grade students who volunteered for
TCAP snacks or drinks. Those lists
should have gone home Friday. Please
check with your student to see if they
volunteered and for what days. There are
thirty 6th grade students.
Mrs. Stewart and Mrs. Peebles sent home
volunteer forms for 5th grade snacks, but they
are still waiting for more to be returned. Each
of their rooms will have fifteen 5th graders.
Ideal TCAP snacks include something like
breakfast bars or individual snack bags (e.g.,
cookies, chips, or pretzels) and a juice box.
Below are the highlights of what we “plan”
to do over the next week.
