Greetings on this lovely spring day!

The next 6 weeks are jam-packed with LOTS of events.  Please also note that ISTEP online testing begins this week and will run into the first week of May.  Thanks for your help in avoiding appointments, tardies, and absences during this time.

PLEASE RSVP for our VIP Day that is THIS Friday!  I have received very few, and would hate to turn anyone away from lunch.  It is very important that the lunch ladies have a head count.  Thanks for your attention to this matter!

Field Trip permission slips went home last Friday!  Sign and return. We have our drivers for the trip. Thank you to the Belden, Marten, Hicks, and Simpson families!

*We could use loose-leaf paper if you can send a package in!*
