It’s Teacher Appreciation Week!

Teacher Appreciation Week is May 7-11. This is our chance to show the staff our appreciation and support for all that they do. Here is what we have planned for them each day: 

Monday: Breakfast on Us

Tuesday: Merci Flower Bouquets
(made from flowers from your own backyard)

Wednesday: Chocolates

Thursday: All Staff Luncheon

Friday: Cards from Students

We will be recognizing the hard work by the classroom teachers as well as the school counselor, music and PE teachers, and speech specialists. We especially need parent volunteers to help put together the merci flower bouquets and food donations for the all staff luncheon. Please sign up to help so we can show the teachers our heartfelt appreciation for all they do. Merci!

Parents of future middle school students are invited to a Math Pathways Information Night on Thursday, May 10. Please join us to learn about middle school math placement andpathways to advanced math in high school, get answers to your questions, and share your thoughts.

Middle School Math Pathways Information Night

These changes are intended to provide equal education opportunities to all students and open up student options for accelerated math course sequences, while also providing all students with the foundational math skills needed to prepare them for success in upper-level courses. Students will have multiple pathways to access upper-level math courses in high school, such as pre-calculus, calculus and statistics.
