April Showers Bring May Flowers!

      If this saying is true, we should have an abundance of flowers in May!  April has had a cold and wet beginning!  

     As our year winds down, our activities pick up.  April and May are extremely busy months.  Our 3rd – 6th grade students are taking their state assessment test.  3rd – 6th grades take Reading and Math.  5th and 8th grade students take Science, and 6th and 8th grade students  take Social Studies.  Each test is given in two sessions.  After the state assessments, the students will be taking their final MAP Assessments.  They take these in Reading, Language Usage, and Math.  They are tired of testing when they are finished with all of these!!

We are looking forward to our Spring Program on Thursday, April 26, at 7:00 PM.  Mrs. Powls and the students are working hard to put together a beautiful program!  Looking ahead, we will be getting ready for our Sports Banquet on Tuesday, May 8, and our 8th Grade Graduation on Tuesday, May 15.   

     As always, please feel free to stop by or call, 785-489-2511, if you have any questions or concerns.  Thank you for always supporting your children and our staff!

Happy Spring!

Mrs. Alford, Principal
