A Message From the Principal
The holidays are quickly approaching as is the middle of the 2013-2014 school year. Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) are the major focus over these next two months. Students have not taken these tests since last spring so we will be eager to see how they have grown and progressed since that time.
Each student will have growth goals for Reading, Language Usage, and Math that we hope they will be able to reach. Please encourage your child to give a great effort on these tests so that the results are accurate and indicative of what they can really do.
We will also be getting an early start this year with our LMS coupon drive/food purchase for needy families. In the last few years we have been able to purchase large quantities of food to be distributed to the needy at Christmas with a modest collection of money and a generous collection of coupons. Please contact the school if you know of a family we might sponsor with this effort. This is a tremendous learning experience for our students as they begin to better understand the difficult circumstances of people in our community and experience the joy of helping those less fortunate or struggling. I encourage you to send us your coupons as well as a few dollars to help this cause.In service to children and our community,
Rhett Harris, Ed.D
