TO MARY THROUGH       JESUS!


The rain cannot spoil the feeling of relief that comes from completing a monumental task.... the IOWAs!!!  I am so proud of all of the students (Grades 2-8) who put forth their personal best and absolutely persevered on the IOWAs!  A few comments I heard in the hall include, "that was kind of easy" and "I love the IOWAs".  As difficult as it might be to believe such words came out of the mouths of our students, I sensed a much greater sense of accomplishment and confidence with the spring administration of the IOWAs.

Although standardized testing is done for the year, our students are not quite done yet!  Overall, the progress reports sent home this week looked quite good, however many of our students simply cannot afford to "check out" early!  It takes a great deal of focus and discipline to finish the school year strong and not allow all of the end of year excitement affect academics.  Let's work together to ensure that fun can be had AND school work can be completed!

The end of year excitement includes, but is not limited to: 
  • Field trips for MANY of our classes
  • The Musical Spectacular!
  • Graduations and Celebrations
  • Field Day
Visit our website frequently to stay informed and prepared for the end of year fun! 
God bless and have a wonderful weekend!
