A Note from the Administrators
Today is the last day of new lessons! Now it's time to finish strong and celebrate. Next week is our Make-Up Week for any students who are missing work. Please make sure your students get all their work caught up and turned in so their final report card reflects all the hard work they have put in this year. Then, we celebrate! There are so many fun and exciting virtual events and socially distanced celebrations coming up, and we are excited to honor, acknowledge, and mark the passing of this wonderful, crazy year.
Sincerely,
Mrs. Blakeslee and Mrs. Hart

College and Career Day
Do you, or someone you know, have an interesting job they would be willing to tell our students about? We are hosting our virtual College and Career Day on May 21st and would love to have them participate! Submissions will be short videos, no longer than five minutes. We will collect them and share them with our students to spark their interests in new fields of study, encourage them to pursue higher education, and provide more information for them about jobs they are already interested in.
Email Mrs. Blakeslee for more information or to receive the interview questions.

Data Gathering Assessments
On May 18th and 19th, we will be taking End of Year Data Gathering Assessments in 3rd-6th grade. These will be online assessments to determine students' levels of proficiency in reading and math. These are not going to be graded, and we request that all students take the assessment with no academic assistance from family members. These results will be used to determine who will qualify for Summer School as well as help us plan for instruction in the fall.

Individual logins and instructions will be sent to students to take the assessments, and families will be given immediate results.
