The Grove Grizzly
It was great to see so many parents at our conferences! Thank you for your continued collaboration and support! We hope everyone has a safe and relaxing Spring Break during this upcoming week!! Please note there is NO SCHOOL on Friday, March 22nd! School will resume on Monday, April 1st!!
Summer School Registration
Summer School Registration opened on Wednesday for elementary students!
Be sure to visit the Summer School webpage for information regarding summer school including locations, dates, hours, course descriptions, and the link to register. We highly recommend students continue to participate in academic activities over the summer months. It is often beneficial for students to sign-up for one academic session and one fun session during summer school! Please feel free to contact your child’s classroom teacher or the office for more information or recommendations!
Spring MAP Assessments
Upon our return from Spring Break, our students in grades 2nd – 5th will be taking the spring MAP Assessments. The official assessment window is from Tuesday, April 2nd to Friday, April 12th. Classroom teachers will communicate with parents the exact days in which their class will be taking the math and the reading assessments. Please be sure to read the MAP Parent Information Letter for more details regarding this assessment and tips on how to help support your child to do their best on the assessment.
