Happy Fall! We wanted to update you on a couple of items. First, we wanted to remind parents about videoing and picture taking at our school. Technology is so far along that we all know pictures and videos can pop up on the internet with a click of a button. We respect that parents have different thoughts on this. There are times when taking these videos and photos are fine and there are times when it may be prohibited based on school and district policies. The difference in these times is whether the event is considered a public event or a school event. A public event would be anything that anyone could come to. For example, chorus performances, Fairy festival, or after school events. Events such as field trips, or during the school day activities would be considered "in-school" and we ask that parents and families refrain from sharing any videos or photos taken out of respect for those parents and students who wish not be to photographed or videoed. Thank you for your understanding with this.
This week 3rd and 4th grade students worked really hard on the NECAP testing. Kindergarten, first and second grade students did a great job as supporters of these grades. They would go into the upper grades to share a pet rock, design the doors or do a cheer for the older students. It is so endearing for all the students. These assessments will continue this upcoming week on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
