This week we started state testing for 3rd grade. It has been difficult as the test is longer than we expected and it is quite rigorous. I suggest that you reassure your child that it is a singular measure of his or her learning and not the end all be all for a lifetime! Please take a deep breath and do the best you can by preparing your child with a solid night’s sleep and a protein filled breakfast. No need to do anything else. 4th grade will begin on May 4, followed by 5th grade on May 11 and 6th on May 18.
Please join us for the fun at the ECC Annual Carnival on May 15 from 3:00-7:00. It’s a big fundraiser for our music, science, PE, and coding programs. I am always thrilled to walk around the carnival and see how happy people are. It is a true community event and I know you will have a hard time not smiling at the all of the fun!
Thanks for all of the many things you do for our school, Carrie Brown
