Letter from Mr. Turner


Dear Parents:


As we come to the conclusion of the third nine weeks, I would like to summarize events held during this time.


State Testing

I am happy to report that the Performance-Based Assessments (PBAs) were completed by mid-March.  I want to thank the students, parents, teachers, and Mrs. Ray for their efforts during this lengthy testing window.  The students did a fantastic job with arriving to school in a timely manner and working diligently during each testing day.  This was their first experience with online testing; and I could not be more proud of them!  Please remember that another round of tests (Reading OAAs for 3rd grade and End-of-Year PARCC Assessments for grades 3-5) will begin April 20th and are scheduled into May.  Please see Mrs. Ray’s article in this newsletter for future testing dates.


Scholastic Book Fair

I want to thank the volunteers and Mrs. Polack for their efforts during the Book Fair held the week of February 2nd.  We sold nearly 2,400 books which is the most we have ever sold during this event.  Thank you for your support!



I want to thank the students and teachers for their efforts administering these tests during the week of March 16th.  The results will be sent home more than likely in April.  Please know that these tests measure cognitive and achievement ability and are used as our gifted screener.  The results are also examined for intervention and enrichment purposes going into 3rd grade.




Spring Dance

Special thanks to Mrs. Giebel and Mrs. Sladkey for their many hours preparing for the PTA dance.  I hope you were able to fill out the questionnaire to help the PTA plan for next year’s event.


Parent-Teacher Conferences

Please remember that you can still schedule a conference with your child’s teacher(s), if need be, even though we already had Parent-Teacher Conferences on February 12th.  If you have a concern, feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher and schedule an appointment or communicate via email or phone.


Special Visitors’ Night

I want to thank grandparents and visitors for attending this event on March 26.  It was great seeing so much positive energy coming through the building.  For those of you who donated new or gently used books for our Book Swap that will be held in April, we appreciate your generosity.  Thank you to Mrs. Kelli Coffman, Mrs. Ingram, Miss Horvath, Mrs. Eibler (middle school art teacher), the PTA and Noah’s Ark for their efforts to make this night special.


Finally, as we look to the fourth nine weeks, please take the time to look over the events planned for later in the year listed in this newsletter.  You will see events such as DARE, field trips, awards ceremonies, etc. listed for you.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  Thank you for your support all year.
