Week of 4/23-4/27/16


I don’t know about anyone else, but I am glad to be back on a regular schedule.  Sometimes, it’s nice to change things up a bit, but I’m glad to be done with testing.  With that being said, we do still have several weeks together.  Let’s make these weeks the best ones yet!  We will […]

Week of 4/16/18


Just two more days of our End of Grade (EOG) testing.  Whew!  We’re almost done with the hard part, but please understand that the school year is not over, even though we’ve taken the “End of Grade” test.  We still have a lot of work to do and many more standards to make sure we […]

Greetings from New Orleans, LA!  I hope everyone is enjoying their spring break.  Be sure to get lots of rest and begin going to bed earlier, so that you’ll be ready for “THE TEST” next week!  I hope you are working on those test packets that were sent home last week!  I’ll see you on […]


  A huge thank you goes out to Donors Choose (www.donorschoose.org) and Ripple.com (www.ripple.com) for making this the best school day ever!  Ripple.com funded every single Donors Choose project that was on their site last night!  We are now going to have several new iPads and cases that got donated!  I’m one happy teacher today!  […]

Another Testing Practice Site


Good evening!  I was told about another practice site that students can use to help them become more familiar with the style of the Milestones that the students will be taking in just a few short days.  I will be going over the website with the students in class, but I think it would be […]

Only five more wake-ups until SPRING BREAK!  We can make it!  This is going to be a very busy week!  We will be getting ready for the upcoming GA Milestones that begins the Tuesday after spring break.  I know many people travel for spring break, I’m included, but please try to get some rest and […]

Spring Picture Packages


  As you know, your child’s spring pictures came home on Friday, 3/16 in their graded paper folder.  They are some good looking kiddos!  Please take a minute to look at the directions inside the picture envelope.  If you decide you don’t want to keep the pictures, then please send them back with your child.  […]

Week of 3/19 – 3/23


Wow!  It’s so hard to believe that in just 10 short days, we will be on Spring break.  Please remember that students will be taking the GA Milestones the day after we return from spring break.  I’m asking that students spend just a little bit of time during their spring break to help prepare them […]
