Our school libraries are getting a system upgrade this spring, thanks to generous support from MVEF. The new system, called Follett Destiny, will benefit students in faster check-out and in assigning reading levels to books to help students choose materials that are right for them. The upgrade will take place from April 10 - 17. To ensure that we have as few checked-out books as possible before the upgrade, the last date to check out a book will be March 31. All books should be returned by Friday, April 7.
|We'll have a hot dog BBQ dinner before classrooms open. Please plan on joining us for this wonderful community event. Fill out and return the order form to the office by 3/27 to let us know if you are purchasing food. You pay when picking up.|
New for the 2017-2018 school year we are starting an intermediate chorus for singers who are ready for more of a challenge, but are not quite ready for the top choir (Vocal Ensemble). Students who are currently in choir will be assessed for musical readiness in class. Students who are not currently in choir should sign up for an appointment with Mrs. Gaderlund to be assessed. This will take place after school on Thursday April 27th between 3pm-6pm. Appointments last approx. 10 minutes. This group is also open to incoming 6th graders who need to be assessed after school on this same date. Please email Mrs. Gaderlund for an appointment time.
Please fill out the assessment consent form and bring it to your appointment.
Thank you for being patient with us as we continue to grow and adjust. Here is the new policy.
