I hope everyone had a restful and joyous holiday season.
We are having our Martin Luther King Assembly tomorrow. I want to thank
the staff and students for their efforts to put together a program with
very limited time.
Later this month our students will be taking school wide Reading and
Math tests. These tests will assist teachers in making program changes
at mid-year. It also gives a measure of growth for students over the
first half year.
Please be reminded that Monday, January 15th there will be no classes in
commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.s Birthday.

(My advice, if you have time, would be to attend PTSA meetings at the
schools you are interested in. This is a way to get a feel for teacher
and parent involvement in the school. Good Luck! Mrs. Rogers)
