*A TENTATIVE ALL-PARENTS-MAJOR-PARENTS’ CLUB MEETING on THURSDAY, MAY 4:
Mrs. Bland will be checking with the church’s secretary today and will know if it possible for us to use the chapel on Thursday, May 4, from 7:00 p.m. If the date is cleared, a note will be sent home on Thursday, April 27, informing our parents. The meeting will be followed by a short-friendly time of fellowship in the Fellowship Hall. This will be an informative meeting of Lea’s future! Also, a report about the Western Roundup dinner/auction will be given by Mrs. Stump; consider running for an office for the 2017/2018 school term. Your attendance will allow your child to receive free dress for the entire last week of school in June. The third/fourth grade class will be entertaining us! As always, childcare is available.
The students have already begun to learn songs for our annual program which is scheduled for Friday, May 19, at Christ Community Church at 7 p.m. Teachers are ready to teach students their class dance steps and feel strongly that children should only be taken out of school due to illnesses or family emergencies. You will hear much talk about costumes, accessories, and props. We cannot pull this performance off without the commitment and support of our parents. We urge you to make every effort to have your student in school every day to ensure he/she learns the class dance and keep up with his/her studies! Absent folders with missed work can never replace in-class instructions/directions or teacher-directed lessons/activities.
WEEK OF MAY 1 ~ ACHIEVEMENT TESTS (first – fourth grades):
Teachers will be administering the Stanford 10 standardized achievement tests next week. Make sure your child is RESTED and has eaten a GOOD BREAKFAST! Please keep in mind that achievement tests are to be taken seriously but that it is just one tool in evaluating your child’s progress in school. Report card grades and teacher’s observations are of greater value. It is important that children and parents do NOT feel stressed. “Just do your best” is the best approach teachers will take with students.
May God watch over us as we go through the week with our daily activities.
