Month: March 2017

Wednesday, March 29

This Friday: Students can dress down on Friday for free. They can either wear their talent show outfit OR bring just their class t-shirt to put on top of their shirt for the performance. Students do NOT have to bring their purple shirts for the finale.

Testing treats: Look out for a sign up genius from Mrs. Cutno regarding testing snacks/treats for our students.

Testing encouragement: We would love for your to send in notes of encouragement for your child.  Since there are 5 days of testing, please send in 5 notes if possible.  We will deliver these each morning before testing.  The notes can be in any form- an index card, piece of paper, etc.  They can be a little one-liner or a whole letter.  These notes will help them relax and feel good. If you would like to do this, please send these in with your child by Tuesday, April 18 and I will make sure your child receives one note each day from you.

Milestones Preparation: We will be sending home a brief study guide for math, reading, and language arts if students want to review in the next few weeks. Journals and binders as well as the Milestones online study guides are other great resources if your students want to prepare additionally for the test. However, we would love for them to enjoy Spring Break and get some rest.

Performance on Friday

The Talent Show will be performed again on Friday at 12:30 during school for Cultural Arts Day. Students who participated in the show on Friday need to either wear or bring their outfits to school on Friday: Class t-shirt, uniform bottoms, sweatbands, and purple shirt.
