Principal’s Corner

Dear Families,

Spring is in the air.

We are currently at 1981 AR test points towards our 2500 goal for the AR Carnival in June. Keep reading with your child and remind them to take the AR tests at school. On Wednesday mornings between 8:30 and 8:50 AM students can take AR tests with the parent volunteers. Students should bring in the AR book that they will be testing on.

April 8 – 12 is our book fair. During the Spring it’s  BOGO, so please be sure to stop by the book fair with your child.

We will be celebrating Vintage Day (due to a snow day on the 100th day) on 4/18/19. Accelerated Readers are aging 100 years and reading 100 books. Pleasant Ave readers can dress like a 100 year old while we try to read and complete 100 AR tests.

The TANG museum will be visiting our school April 29-May 1. Each class will have the opportunity to do hands on activities with visiting artists.

Report cards will be distributed on April 18, 2019.
