Sergeant Ryan Albert who is active in the Army, visited the students and shared the story “One” by Kathryn Otoshi. Sergeant Albert is the brother of our very own Sarah Fudge. Students enjoyed listening to the story and asking about Sergeant Ryan’s role in the military. We are most appreciative of his service to our country.
Each year we assess students as a means to identify their individual learning needs in reading and math. The scores are a snapshot in time and is not considered a holistic assessment of a child. Scores will be sent home this October for parents to review.
Students are still getting in the swing of the afternoon bus routine. On some days buses leave as early as 3:15 and other days as late as 3:25. Please ensure that someone is home to receive children considering this window of time.
