Welcome back! I hope your #SB2017 was one for the books!  From the looks and sounds of it, your student enjoyed the time off.

Can you believe there are only about 8 weeks left of school!?   Please “help me help you” keep your  child focused for the remaining quarter.  I know how spring-fever hits and it can be tricky.  Just an extra pep talk in the morning before drop off can be a huge help!

ISTEP testing, yes, again, is just around the corner.  Students will take their tests on our Chromebooks!  Watch follow-up blogs for more information as time draws near.
