ELA State Exam:  Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday - April 16, 17 and 18.  

Math State Exam: Wednesday, Thursday, Friday - April 24, 25 and 26.   

Students have been well-prepared for these tests; however, parents may wish to consider limiting television and other stimulus the night before.  Serve a protein-filled dinner the night before for increased brain power!  We don't want students to be stressed, but we do want to support them so they can reach their potential.   

Please make sure your child arrives to school well-rested and on time on these dates! 

Students should bring #2 pencils to school, and eat a healthy dinner the night.  As always, school breakfast will be provided each morning.   

iInquire Week: Monday, April 29 through Friday, May 3.   

Once exams are completed, from April 29 through May 3, our school will transform into a science institute where each day will be jam-packed with science learning including experiments, trips, films, and more!  Each child will become an URBAN EXPLORER completing and investigation and experiment in one of these five programs. Details, permission slips and activity fees to follow.
