 Dear Parents,   

Spring Break is here!  March 25th to April 2nd! 

When we return from break our class will be participating in the state wide IAR Assessment testing.  We will not be having our usual curriculum routines.  We will not be testing in Math or Language Arts during the IAR Assessment week.  There will be no Fluency folder readings.  I encourage students to bring a healthy snack and get a good sleep during test week.  All students need working headphones for the IAR Test.  Please double check with your child to see if they are in need a headphones.  

 ATTENTION! There is a new BOXTOPS Contest! Now through March 22nd--the class at each grade level that collects the most boxtops wins a milk and donut breakfast!

Our Haines Food Drive continues.  Please consider donating.
