Message from a 5th Grade Exhibition Group

We are the animal shelter fifth grade exhibition group. We are wanting to help the All Aboard Animal Rescue. It is a local animal shelter that holds many pets with no homes. Here is one of the many animals that are there. This is Flash, he is a sweet and snuggly Domestic Shorthair/Mix. Flash is currently being fostered but he wants a forever home!

Upcoming State and District Required Assessments:

In our spring semester we will be administering annual state and district required assessments. Please make note of the dates for the assessments your child will be taking and, whenever possible, please avoid absences during the testing periods. Please note that, on testing days, if students arrive late after testing has begun, they will not be able to join their class until testing has completed for the day. Having students on time and present on testing days helps us gather valuable data while minimizing interruptions to daily instruction. Please help us meet that goal!

Typically, assessments begin in the morning and conclude each day prior to lunch.
