Principal to Parent
Thank you to all of our families who participated in our Parent-Teacher Conferences in February. The
opportunity to partner with you in order to best meet your child’s needs is critical to their success at school. I
am so proud of the learning I see taking place in each classroom and the great support at home with practicingwhat is learned
in reading, writing and math. You are making a huge impact on your child’s future with your 
commitment to that support!This month we will conclude our

A
ssessment
P
rogram, formerly CSAP, by continuingour testing of third grade students in math and writing; our fourth and fifth grade students will be tested inreading, math and writing; and fifth grade will also have three hours of testing in science. These tests are fairlycomprehensive and give us great information about how each student is progressing in all of these academicstandards. It also assists us in evaluating our curriculum and instructional practices. Additionally, all schoolsare evaluated on their progress toward the state goals of having virtually all students meeting proficiencystandards in reading, math, writing and science by 2013. For all of these reasons it is important for eachstudent to be present and do their very best to show what they know on these exams.We want our students to approach the tests with excitement about this opportunity to do great work, but notanxiety about this being for a grade or something of which to be fearful. Please help your student do his or her 
best by getting a good night’s sleep, a hearty breakfast and having a healthy attitude
each day! It is especiallyhelpful if appointments are made after school hours during the two weeks we will be testing. Many of our dayswill have testing in both the morning and afternoon. Hopefully we will all stay healthy during testing!Our actual testing days:Third grade: March 12

After School Clubs
Please remind your students when they have a club and be sure to tell them the plans for gettinghome after! We will announce the clubs each day over the intercom to remind students to attend.Students will be released in to the front hall at the end of clubs at 4:50p, so please be there topick them up if that is the transportation plan! Also make sure siblings know how they are to gethome after school when another sibling is in club.Remember the office staff leaves at 4p and there will not be anyone to answer the phones after that so it is crucial that the students know the plan for getting home safely.Thank you and we look forward to another successful year of fun and bonding with our students during Clubs!
Class Placements for Next Year
Many 
factors are included in the complex process of designing class lists. We use academic and social needs,parental input, gender balance, learning styles and dynamics created when certain children are groupedtogether. A Parent Input form, which is used to
provide us with information about your child’s specific needs, is
now available in the front office if you wish to have additional information considered in the process. Pleasereturn it to the office by April 12
th
and please do not request a specific teacher.
