Happy second week of April! Things have been pretty normal and we are cruising right along. Thank you in advance for all of you that are sending in snacks for the SAS testing this week. The testing begins on Monday the 9th of April and ends on the 13th. Our testing schedule is as follows......Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday we will test at 8:15 until 9:30. Thursday we will test in the afternoon because of the Band and String Concert in the morning. Please make sure the kids get a good night's rest and they have something to eat before they come to school. Encourage the kids to do their best and not to worry. The tests will consist of reading, math, and writing. They will be taken on the computers.
We are only doing 12 spelling words this week due to the testing.
We will alternate math and reading and hopefully we will have our unit 6 test on Friday.
Our president unit is in full swing and our presidential portraits are almost read to be put up. Come check out our Hall Of Presidents later this week.
Let the kids be kids. Every child has a strength. It is up to the teacher to find it or tap it so they can work to their highest potential. I tend to set the bar very high. Lifetime memories should be made in the classroom and at school. NBCS should be a place where kids enter happy and go home with a smile on their face. I want my kids getting up in the morning begging to go to school!
