Free Choice Area (By Brianna): Today we got to wear our pajamas and bring pillows, and blankets to school. We were able to watch a movie for 30 minutes. We got to do this because we earned enough Dojo points.
Teacher's Corner (By Mr. Singer and Mrs. Topp): Only one week until spring break. However, someone needs to tell Mother Nature. Brewers are about to come back town and it would be nice to have warm weather when attending games. Just saying ;)
Forward Exam testing started this next with ELA sessions. Mrs. Topp did the tests with the students and besides a few makeups needed, they students are done. Mr. Singer will be testing math on Monday and Tuesday this coming week. Please help the students do their best by; making sure they have had a good night's rest the evening before, a hearty breakfast, and a positive attitude when coming to school. For more about the Forward exam is, see Mr. Dembosky’s email from earlier this week.
APTT - Again we would like to know what you thought of the process if you attended and we would like to know what we can do differently to get those who did not attend to come. Please CLICK HERE for the survey. We want as many families to respond as possible. Again, even if you did not attend once we would like to know what it is we can do to better accommodate your family to have you join us.
