WELCOME FROM YOUR PASSIONATE PRINCIPAL
Greetings Parents and Community Members,
Happy March! The English Language Arts (ELA), Writing, Math and Science FSA Assessments and the End of Year exams will be administered in April and May. This month serves as our last push to review and practice the skills that students may need to improve, so we call it “Crunch Time”.
You can help your child to be prepared by making sure that they read for at least 30 minutes each night without interruptions from television, video games or background noises. This will help them to build up the stamina that is needed to read long passages that they will see on the assessments.
Many grade levels are planning end of the year field trips to celebrate the completion of testing. Please note that students must meet behavior expectations in order to attend off campus trips. If you have any questions about your child’s progress, please contact the school or attend our next SAC meeting on March 10th at 6 PM.
Did you know we have a full-time School Social Worker and Resource Room with free books, parent guides and videos to help with your child at home? We also will be starting a Food Pantry reserved for Parents and Community members. Feel free to stop by the school and see Mrs. Grant, our School Social Worker.
Shedrick Dukes, Ed.S. Principal
