We are looking for donations for the auction as well if anyone would like to make a donation from your family, business, etc.
We will be starting our MAPs testing this next week with ELA as the first test, and then mathematics will follow the next week.
Please remember to send back the Fox River technology agreement form as soon as you can. They were given to families at the parent night or in a packet sent home last week if you were unable to make that meeting at FR. Fox River also dropped off lockers for purchase in the office. They are on sale for $7. Stop in or bring money with your child to get one now and have them practice over the summer.
