We will be having the STAR assessment next week Tuesday-Friday. This is the assessment tool that the students take three times a year so that we can see the areas of success or improvement or failure that our students are achieving. The hope is to better meet the needs of all the students and strengthen any areas that are in need.
There is also an Eagle Award open gym scheduled for Friday.
We will be having a lot of opportunities for the students to venture out of the typical learning environment in the weeks ahead. It will be very important however that current work is being completed carefully and grades are maintained so that participation can take place. Please encourage your child to continue to work on those work habits so that they can be an active part of any of these activities. Privileges came with hard work, determination and dedication….even in the Spring!
