MAP testing is off to a good start.  Please check the schedule on the school website for when your child has a test over the next two weeks.  Results will be sent home along with report cards for the 2nd trimester on Friday, March 3. 

We collected feedback from parents who attended the Parent-Teacher conferences on Feb 2.  If you did not fill out a survey that night, you can find it here.  Please print, complete, and return to the school office next week.  If you did not attend, we are interested in your feedback as well.  Please print this survey, complete, and return to the school office next week.  Thanks for taking time to give us valuable information as we evaluate what we do.
