Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome Back! I hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing Spring Break. Sage Testing is approaching. Fifth grade students will take Sage Tests beginning on April 24th, through May 5th. The Math and Science Sage Tests will be given on April 24th and 25th, and May 1st and 2nd. Please have those dates on the calendar to minimize being tardy, or and absent on those dates. Students are strongly encouraged to bring their own headphones for testing dates. Thank you for encouraging your child to do his/her best, to finish our last quarter strong!

During the weeks of testing, please make sure that your child:

  •  Goes to bed early and is well rested
  •  Eats a good breakfast.
  •  Packs a healthy snack/and water.
  •  Has a positive, “I can-do-anything” attitude!
  •  Comes prepared to do his/her best!

Please continue to check Aspire Gradebook weekly, and as regularly as possible with your child, to teach them to be responsible and to take ownership of their learning.
