A million “thank you!”s would not be enough to express our appreciation for another fabulous Staff Appreciation Week. Everything was awesome! The food! The raffle prizes! The cards! Thank you Erin Dorazio and her team of volunteers and parents for your awesome support and donations to make it such a special week!
MCAS testing is going very well. The testing window will be completed by May 19th. The computer based testing with fourth grade went off without a hitch. Next year fifth grade will join fourth grade by taking MCAS online. By spring of 2019 all third through sixth graders will complete MCAS online.
Planning for Nature’s Classroom is already underway. Larry Chambers was here last Thursday for the Parent Information Night. First payments are due at this time. Please see Mr. Tucker if there are any questions. Sargent Center has a great website to visit.
Walking Wednesdays are back! We were so pleased with the participation last Wednesday. One of our sixth graders won the Safe Routes to School yard sign contest! We are keeping it a secret until the May All School Meeting! Check back on Facebook to see who won after the 19th! Second grade students recently participated a pedestrian safety class sponsored by the Safe Routes to School Program. Thanks to our parents who helped run the groups.
