Yes, that’s right. Summer is officially over and the fall season has begun. Although it is still bright and sunny outdoors, fall is here.

With the cooler weather just around the corner, please be sure to have a light sweater or hoodie in your locker, just in case the temperatures in our classroom gets cooler.

Just a reminder……Wednesday, September 25th is TEST day in all classes on Lesson 1.


NWEA Testing in all Math Classes

Please make sure that your child gets plenty of rest and sleep over the next several days, as he/she will be NWEA testing in Math class beginning Wednesday, September 11th.

Research studies have proven that a lack of sleep negatively affects performance on tests. Research also suggests that eating a healthy breakfast positively impacts test results.

Please reinforce the importance of performing well on standardized tests with your child!

Thank you for your support!!
