* FYI - Please take note that although the last CE assignment was 1/19 - 2 weeks ago, there is no CE due this coming week because of testing. The students have an additional week to complete the next one which will be due 4/9. The remaining due dates are: 4/23, 5/7, and 5/21.
With testing beginning next week, please help out at home to ensure that your child is getting adequate rest, a good breakfast, and a nutritious snack. My fingers are crossed that we can get to warmer weather on a regular basis so the class can get out and run to release some energy through these next 2 weeks.
Be on the lookout for a bright yellow flier coming home today with GREAT NEWS!
Have a wonderful weekend! (Despite the early arriving "April showers"...)
