Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer):
I hope everyone has had a great week. We have been busy as usual here at school working to be successful. This week we started out MAPs testing for the spring season. The students took the reading test and did very well as a class. Next week we will continue with math results on Thursday. Next week is also the start of May. We are only a little over one month away from the end of 6th grade and the start of 7th preparation.
Last week was the opening of the progress report checking period for the third trimester. I will be checking the results of your visit in one week. Please check the progress of your students for the period of April 19th to May 3rd. Thanks to everyone for checking on Skyward so far.
