Notes from Mr. B.
Important dates are now listed on the calendar contained on this web page.
Greetings from the desk of Mr. Buzzard:
We now enter February and the first round of the new state tests. Some tests will be similar to the old tests and require written responses to questions from a test booklet. Other tests will be taken on a computer. Success on all of the tests will require knowledge of the subject matter as well as a grasp on all of the skills needed to effectively take the exam. Students will need to read and follow directions in order to do well. We have been doing our best to prepare the students for the challenges of these new tests. We will try to communicate with you on the testing days for your student and ask your help in gaining the best score possible by allowing for a good night's sleep and getting them breakfast before their long morning of testing. We are scheduled to begin our initial round on Feb. 17th.
Other dates to keep in mind:
Feb. 2nd - District Spelling Bee at 12:45 in the auditorium.
Feb. 7th- PTO sponsored Gala.
Feb. 11th- Parent/Teacher Conferences.
Feb. 13th to 16th- President's Day Weekend Vacation.
