We hope to see you at our annual Multicultural Festival this Friday, April 28th from 5:00-8:00. We will be celebrating with a variety of food and music, dancing, performances, a fashion show and face painting too! It's going to be a great event and we look forward to seeing you all there!
State testing in the areas of Language Arts, Math, and Science is coming up for all students in grades 3-5 beginning on May 1st. We will be testing through May 31st. It is very important that your child be on time to school, get plenty of rest, and have a good breakfast before testing begins each day. Any child who arrives at school late, will have to take the test on a make-up day. Please make sure that any appointments are scheduled for after school on testing days. Thank you!
Thank you for your patience in the parking lot with our limited parking! Our amazing staff is getting a remodeled staff room with new restrooms. The work will be done by the time we return from our summer vacation. Please rememeber that with the limited parking in the front parking lot, you cannot park your car in the drive through line because it will cause even more of a backup. Thank you!
Thank you to all that came out to our Bike Rodeo last Friday from 2:30-4:00 on the playground. The students were very safe on their scooters, bikes, skateboards and rollerblades! Thank you to all the volunteers who stayed to help make this event so fun!

Students had equal say as adults as more than 100 parents, students, staff and neighbors gave input at a March 23 community forum about creating a new Preschool–8th-grade school in the District.
The meeting began with attendees using stickers to vote on the Guiding Principals the Transformation Team will consider as it develops recommendations for the Governing Board. Then, participants and facilitators separated into affinity groups—parents with other parents, students with students, and so on—so they could discuss hopes, concerns and ideas for the new school. They consolidated their input and reported it back to the whole group. Their responses are posted on the District's Transformation web page in the March 23 meeting notes.
In April, the Transformation Team will review the responses and identify common themes to address in recommendations it sends to the Board in June.
Beginning this Friday, March 31st, We will be collecting gently used shoes to donate to kids in need through the program Soles4Souls.

Please clean out those closets and bring in those shoes!
