Getting River Ready
There is a Fifth Grade Capstone Meeting on May 11th at 5:30pm. This is a required meeting for fifth grade students and parents in preparation for the upcoming capstone trip on the Colorado River.

ERB Testing Week
Thanks to Amy T. for helping with snacks and to the students for the hard work. It is a different format for the students to be attending to a multiple choice test for these extended periods of time. We will send test results home in May. Please read the results in conjunction with I-Ready scores, trimester reports and grades, and your child's rubrics for projects. These are snapshots of skills and test taking abilities and not the only evidence of progress.

World’s Fair

On May 13th, fourth and fifth grade students will be having a World’s Fair during our math block. Parents be aware that students are asked to make a food item that represents the country they have been studying and will present. Thanks for your support! Other students will be the guests at this World’s Fair event.
