JOKE OF THE WEEK
It looks like we are in for another wet melting experience. And, it will also be windy.
If you go outside, then please put the snowshoes on in the snow. They can be damaged when people put them on and take them off on the concrete sidewalk. THANK YOU.

What is NAEP?
It is a Common Measure of Student Achievement
The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is the only assessment that measures what U.S. students know and can do in various subjects across the nation, states, and in some urban districts. Also known as The Nation’s Report Card, NAEP has provided important information about how students are performing academically since 1969.

SUPPORTING OUR SCHOOL COMMUNITY
One of our former long-time staff members recently experienced a health event. Our staff are stepping up to offer support as they do multiple times each year for many different people. This time teachers are bidding against each other to purchase baked goods that various staff members have made. The money collected will go to that special staff member on our minds. It is occasions like this that remind us that our lives and health can be fragile. It is a wonderful feeling to know that colleagues support each other in tough times. Such support has often extended beyond staff to the greater school community.
