Rescheduling of Promotion Ceremony for 5th Grade

Good morning 5th grade families!

After watching the forecast and noting the shift in the weather (from a 20% to 60% chance of thunderstorms on Friday), we have made the decision to reschedule our 5th grade promotion ceremony to Thursday evening at 6:30pm.
We understand that scheduling for families is difficult, so we are hopeful that this time frame will accommodate family work schedules. Here is the schedule for the festivities:

  • 6:00 Arrival time
    • Students report to their classrooms. 
    • Parents may be seated.
  • 6:30 Promotion Ceremony Begins
  • 7:15 Refreshments and Photo Opportunities

We would like to request that students help stack up chairs following refreshments.  Any other help from families would be greatly appreciated.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you!
Mr. Short

NWEA Testing

Spring NWEA math and reading scores are used for STEM invitations. According to the attached updated STEM Admissions Timeline link, students will only have through May 18th to complete the NWEA math and reading tests. Monday, May 10th is the first day for testing. Because of the upcoming break and hybrid classes there will only be two in-person days to finish the tests. Students may have to come in on their at-home days if they need more time to finish. You can email me if you have further questions.

First Week of School Plan

Good morning everyone! Monday morning is our first day of virtual school. As part of our soft start plan, the schedule for this week will be a little different than in future weeks. This week we will be meeting on Zoom each morning from 9:00-9:30 am only. Links to these online Zoom meetings will be sent to your email address on file daily. This is the same email address that your child’s classroom teacher assignment was sent to. If you would like me to add a different email address to this list, please email me at to let me know and I will make the adjustment. Please make sure you are checking this email account for updates daily, as this will be our primary mode of communication until we get Schoology up and running smoothly. It is our plan to transition from email to Schoology for communication starting September 8, but will let you know if anything changes beforehand. Thank you all for your patience and support as we set off on this new adventure!
