MESSAGE FROM MRS. JACKSON

I want to take this opportunity to thank all the parents for supporting our safety efforts.  We appreciate the mask and hand sanitizer donations!  Second semester is in full swing and students and teachers are working hard.  Our students in grades 3-5 will take Kansas Assessments in April and May.  Thus far this year, they have taken two Kansas Interim Assessments.   These assessments are used to prepare students for the Math, Reading, and Science Assessments.  We plan to hold Zoom Sessions on Thursday, February 11th to review the reports.  You will receive your child’s scores prior to the meeting.  The schedule is as follows:  3rd Grade (5:00-5:30), 4th Grade (5:30-6:00), and 5th Grade (6:00-6:30).  We will email links prior to the meetings.
