Good afternoon!

Our ISASP (Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress) testing window is quickly approaching.  These standardized assessments are important as they are one piece of a measure of how the state rates schools and districts within Iowa.  3rd and 4th-grade students are scheduled to take the tests in our main window of March 18- 27; your child’s teacher will share a more detailed schedule in the next few weeks.  Attendance is important over this stretch of time as makeup tests can be tricky to reschedule.  Some test-taking tips for both at home and at school can be found here.  

2023-2024 Class composites are ready to download!

Lunch reminder – if you plan to eat with your child, you need to call the office by 9 AM so that we can get an accurate lunch count.  We will not be able to serve adult lunches if you have not called ahead.
