Errington Edition 4/10

 In Branding

We are full force into AZMERIT Reading and WOW! Our kids and our teachers are just amazing. Thank you families for following our tips and suggestions to making testing successful. We have very limited makeups because of your support. The students and teachers are truly taking these assessments seriously to show what they know. Please continue to monitor the testing schedule website:


I am going to ask for your support in the arena of toys at school. We have had an increase in students bringing toys, Pokemon cards, dolls, etc… What I’m noticing is an increase in disagreements, trading, and hurt feelings. Our elementary students have TWO recesses a day to run around, play games, make believe, and have conversations with friends. Please check your child’s backpack before heading to school and make sure toys are remaining at home. Thank you for keeping the school day focused on learning and physical activities.

Campus Beautification Day
