APRIL 18 – APRIL 22

Milestones are finally behind us!! The Durham Derby 5 K registration is May 7th.  Make sure you are registered.  This year the race will be in honor of Ms. Leisa Howard.

Students, please remember to bring sufficient school supplies with you each day.  There is still much learning to be done for our rising eighth graders between now and the end of the years.  You should always have paper, a blue or black pen, and a pencil available.

APRIL 11 – APRIL 15

Welcome Back!!  I hope everyone had a fun and restful Spring Break.  This week students will begin Milestone Testing on Wednesday April 13th. It is very important for students to be in homeroom on time. Remember that a good night sleep and a healthy breakfast are especially important during testing.  Please remember that students will need two #2 pencils with good erasers each day.  Mechanical pencils are not allowed.  Cellphones or other electronic devices must be turned off and stored in a locker during testing. Also, basic or scientific calculators may be used for certain math sections.  GRAPHING CALCULATORS are not allowed, nor can students use their cellphone as their calculator.  There are very specific guidelines for making up tests, so please try to ensure that your child is present Wednesday through Friday and Monday and Tuesday of next week.
