School Announcements

Welcome to April!

Hooray!! April is here! Sunshine & warmer weather have arrived, the trees and flowers are starting to bloom, and with all of this lovely weather comes lots of exciting activities in our classrooms and the beginning of spring MCAP testing.

Beginning next week grades 3-5 will take MCAP and students will participate in a total of 8 testing sessions spread out over 2 weeks. Stay tuned for a DoJo message from your child's teacher with specific dates & helpful hints.

Our 3rd, 4th & 5th grade students have been working really hard to get ready and all of our Pre-K, K, 1st & 2nd grade students are busy planning ways to support them! We know that taking the MCAP assessment will be challenging, but we also know that our PAWSitively Amazing students will give 100% and never give up! Panda Nation Rocks!!

Peace & Panda Love to all!🐼❤
