Spring Testing: The Iowa Assessment for grades K-8 is scheduled for April 16-20. Punctuality will be a must due to the disruptiveness late arrivals cause to those already testing. Students who arrive late will not be allowed to go into class until the test has ended. Missing sections of the test will result in incomplete test scores for your child. Students should arrive at school before the morning bell rings at 8:00 AM. Results will be shared with you during parent conferences at the end of May. – Amy Gaido, Asst. Head of School

TES PTO: The PTO nominations for next school year are open. Please email me at rashidajolivet@gmail.com. We need nominations for most positions, such as Parent Reps, Parent Education and Cultural Enrichment to name a few. Please feel free to nominate yourself if you are interested. More information will follow soon, but please start thinking about someone. Nominations are open to everyone. – Rashida Jolivet, PTO President
