We will have ISTEP testing for grades 3rd through 5th starting February 26th through March 9th. It is very important to have your child here on testing days so please try to avoid scheduling any appointments during this time. Also make sure your child is getting a good nights sleep and eating a nutritious breakfast in the morning. This will help them to do their personal best. PTO will be providing snacks for the kids between test.  

Did you know the TSC website offers lots of great tools for your child to use at home. They have access to typing games, math games, reading games, and much more. To access this log into the TSC website, on the homepage select student, on the right side of the screen go to the Elem. Tech Lab tab. Games are then broken down by grade. This is a fantastic way for your child to continue to work on these skills at home while having fun!

A Note From The Nurse

*If your child comes home with clothes from the nurse's office please make sure you wash and return them. This way we have clothes to offer if a child needs them. Thank you!

*With the flu going around do you know the difference between a cold and the flu? Below is a great article to let you know what the difference is and what to look for with the flu.
