Principal’s Journal

Wow!!!  Our first week back from spring break and it has been an excellent week.  Our students and staff are focused in the classrooms and we have one more week of MAP testing for reading and math.  Plus, as hard to believe as it is, we are three weeks away from KPREP testing and six weeks away from the end of the school year.  We have a great deal of work to do and a short time to get it done.  Let’s finish as strong as we started by taking our attendance numbers back up to around 97% and making sure we are performing at the level we expect to perform at – distinguished!!!!!! 

 

Thank you for all your support throughout the year!  We are looking forward to an incredible end of the year!
