We have finally finished our first round of benchmark testing for 3rd - 5th grade students.  It has been a long two weeks for them, especially our 4th graders.  I appreciate their effort.  Teachers are now analyzing all the data and creating plans that will begin after winter break.

Third graders attended the annual performance of the Nutcracker.  I always enjoy seeing the students dress-up for the occasion.

For those that missed the general PTA meeting on Thursday, the presenter, Carrie Contey, was outstanding.  I wish that all the teachers and parents could hear her speak.  Understanding how children behave by knowing how the brain works is a much more effective way to interact with children.  If you ever have the opportunity to hear her speak, go.  It would be worth every penny!  For more information and upcoming events, go to

Next week is our last week prior to winter break.  There will be a 5th grade musical performance Tuesday evening.  Holiday parties start happening Wednesday.  Make sure you know when your child's party is.
