Wednesday announcements

March 13, 2007

Today is Wednesday, March 14th, and it is a "no" day because of ISAT. We don't have Encore classes until Friday.

Speaking of Friday, it will be the end of 3rd quarter...already! We will have a 1:30 dismissal that day, and will have our celebration from 12:30-1:30. The student will have choices about what activities to enjoy. We are hoping for nice weather so they can be outside!

The first day of ISAT testing went very well. The students seem to be taking it very seriously, and have worked until the end of each session. We have been encouraging them, as we know that they are familiar with the strategies of good test-taking practice. Encourage them to get a good night of sleep, and eat well in the morning. The students (and teachers) have been great!

We will have a sports' physical clinic at LMS on Wednesday, March 21 from 2:30-4:00. The cost will be $10.00, payable to LMS. Please call to reserve a slot! (525-3236)

The School Board has adopted an amended calendar due to the emergency days that have been used this year. Here are the changes:
Last day of 4th quarter-June 5. 90 minute attendance for students.
Students dismissed 60 minutes early on May 31, June 1 and June 4.

For those 6th grade parents who had to miss tonight's training, we will have optional dates for you soon. Keep watching the webpage!
