Our students continued to work hard this week completing Illinois Assessment of Readiness sections in literacy and math. We'll continue testing next week and plan to finish by May 12th. Thank you to our RLA families for bringing their children to school to complete these assessments. It was great to see many of them in person this week!
Planning for next year is in full swing, and we will welcome our kindergarten class of 2021-22 for kindergarten screening on May 21st. We will also begin articulation meetings between Young Explorers and our kindergarten team. Similarly, fifth-grade teachers will be participating in articulation meetings with NBJH staff next week to discuss the transition process for fifth-grade students.
Our awesome PTO will be recognizing our fantastic staff during Teacher Appreciation Week next week with breakfasts, lunches and daily treats. We encourage you to reach out and let your child's teachers know that they are appreciated--especially in a year where we've asked so much of our staff.
Enjoy the warm weekend weather!
