One more week of CAASPP testing. Firth grade students will be finishing up their Science testing Monday through Wednesday. The past two weeks, our 3rd-6th grade students have been working so diligently. They used scratched paper, took notes, and made sure to take their time. Thank you Parents for getting your students to school on time.
We will have in-person end of the year awards. We encourage all of our Crusaders to give their best effort this trimester, so they can be eligible for citizenship and academic awards. The awards criteria was sent home via Remind and Parent Square a few weeks ago.

Sal on your mark!
We will be having end of the year field trips for all grade levels. If you are interested in chaperoning for your child's class, please stop by the office between 7:30-4:30 to pick up a Volunteer packet. All new applicants must submit a completed volunteer packet, a current Tuberculosis clearance, ID or Drivers License, your Covid Vaccine card if you have been vaccinated (or you must provide a negative test within 72 hours of the field trip). You will also need to pass a background check through KCOE LIVESCAN, even if you have been cleared by your employer. We will provide you with all the documentation required. The approval process takes between 3-4 weeks, therefore it is crucial that you get the process started as soon as possible.
