March 1, 2001


Dear Parents,


I hope you enjoyed your extended Mid-Winter Break.  Unfortunately the

closure of school due to snow will extend the school year by one day.  I

am assuming the added day will come at the end of the school year.


The third and fifth grade students have been working on their DWA

(Direct Writing Assessment) the past three days.  I want to thank our

students for their hard work over this period.  The fifth graders will

begin the ITBS (IOWA test of Basic Skills) on March 19th and will go

through the 23rd.  Third graders will take the ITBS March 26th through

the 28th.  Testing for both grade levels will take place in the



I want to thank all of the parents that have returned the survey on

budget priorities for the next school year.  If you haven’t returned

your survey tomorrow is the last day to return it to the school.


Please be reminded that Report Cards will be sent home on March 12th.


Tomorrow is the PTSA Auction.  I want to thank Sandy Watkins and her

committee in addition to all of the classrooms, parents and teachers for

all their hard work in preparing for this special event.  I personally

want to thank the PTSA for their continued commitment to our program.

This Auction is another example of the wonderful parent participation we

have here at Arbor Heights.  As I took prospective parents on the

Kindergarten tours during the months of January and February, they were

able to see the wonderful things you have all done for the school.  The

entire community appreciates your work.
