May 2, 2014 Friday Parent Letter
May 2, 2014
Happy Friday! We completed our pilot state assessment this week. Staff and students have an idea on what to expect next year when we take the Smarter Balance assessments. Today the students participated in a nationwide Stand4Change Anti Bullying initiative. Our students overall have shown improvement with their behavior choices. We applaud their success and encourage them to continue making our school a safe environment for everyone. There is still work to be done regarding how to treat others in a positive manner.
