As we step into April I would like to remind everyone that Smarter Balanced testing will continue for students in 3rd-8th grade through April 17th. This time frame includes make up days for students who are absent or do not finish in the time provided. 3rd-5th started their tests in March and will finish the first week of April. Junior High students will begin testing on the 9th. Please make sure that your students arrive on time, sleep well, and eat a healthy breakfast in order to be fueled for the day!
Classroom guidance lessons for April will focus on self-concept for the beginning of the month and transition into feelings and emotions. An emphasis on positive self-talk will be incorporated through the month as well. Please encourage your students to embrace their differences and be proud of themselves as unique individuals!
