As we enter the month of February, we are very busy taking care of our core business, “Teaching and Learning”; our focus, “Continuous Improvement”; and our commitment, “ALL means ALL”. As Mardi Gras is upon us, I am forced to slow down and realize that the school year is moving along very quickly and we only have four months left for this school year. This is a critical time of year for academics because so many new skills and concepts are still being introduced and practiced. We will continue to support our students through specific classroom interventions in addition to academic interventions with our interventionists and paraprofessionals. Even with the excitement of Mardi Gras just around the corner, please make sure homework, including nightly reading, is a priority.
We are continuing to prepare our students for the upcoming standardized testing this spring. Online testing for our 4th and 5th graders will begin Monday, April 9. Paper-based testing for all grades will occur April 30- May 4. Please help us encourage our
students to do their very best. Having a great attitude about testing always helps ease the anxiety.
We would like invite our parents to attend our Spring FACT Sessions on for LEAP 2025 as we will provide important information about testing. Please be on the lookout for flyers with the dates and times for each grade level session.
Thank you for your continuous support of our school, our students and our entire faculty. We know that our parents are the first teachers of our children and value the great partnerships we have with you. When your child succeeds, we all succeed. Let’s continue to work together as we live our motto, “Every Child Everyday Whatever/Whoever It Takes” as we “Soar to Excellence”. With your ongoing support, we will continue to achieve excellence while making a difference in the lives of our students.
