Our Spring Parent Teacher Conferences continue this week. They began on Thursday, March 14 and end on Thursday, March 21.  Please make every effort to attend the scheduled conference to discuss your child’s progress.  Our teachers and students will share very important information and you will have an opportunity to ask questions about your child’s progress this school year.

It is hard to believe our next break is right around the corner! Spring Break begins on March 25 and continues through April 5.  Students will return to school on April 8.  It will be a minimum day. We hope you enjoy the time off with your children.  We encourage all our students to continue reading and practicing math over the break.  Also, you may want to have your child practice a few sample test items to help prepare for CAASPP testing in May: Practice Tests. Thank you for your support!
