Mr Gray 

Kindergarten orientation was tonight. 

The Math Test will be administered next week.

Our outside garden will get going soon. The rain has slowed us down.  

There will be a sunflower garden and a bean garden this year.  

A bird feeder has been added.

Family support helps our garden and we will be looking for weekly volunteers over the summer.

The downstairs garden is doing very well.  

In June, a site-based visit will be scheduled to see the Science Lab and the newsroom.

There are lots of events coming up in the spring.

I would like to give special thanks to the fifth grade teachers and parents for all their hard work. 


Q - (VicMarie Sookdeo) After my son finished his New York ELA test he had to sit there with nothing to do when he was done.  Could students who finish read a book?


A - It is really not allowed.  Over 1/2 are not taking the test and because it is untimed, it is hard to manage.  


Julie Croshere: Math usually moves quicker so it may be shorter and easier to administer.  


Mrs. Steingruebner:  Mr. Gray does monitor and if the majority of students are done he will move the kids still taking the test to another location.  


7:35pm - Break for BOE Roadshow
