Mr. Brown’s Message:

 The end of the 3rd nine weeks is today.  All students will be coming home with report cards on Tuesday, March 19th.  Parents, please make sure to sign the report card slip and send those back to school before Spring Break.   

Spring break begins on Friday, March 22nd.  I hope everyone has a great break and comes back to school rejuvenated and ready for the last stretch of the school year.  The final nine weeks is full of important learning and state testing.  For our 3rd-6th grade students this will be the first time to experience the new ILEARN assessment.  The testing window is April 22nd-May 17th.  Specific schedules for each grade level will be shared at a later date.  If you are traveling over Spring Break, please be safe in all your travels.  Students return back to school on Monday, April 1st.
