Morning Arrival Reminders - Please Make Sure Your Child is ON TIME for School!! 

As we are getting back into the swing of things after winter break, please remember that school STARTS at 8 a.m., which means that students need to arrive prior to 8:00 a.m. in order to be ready for instruction to begin. Students can arrive starting at 7:40 a.m. and enter the building at 7:55 a.m., giving them time to unpack, chat with their friends and teachers, and get settled prior to instruction starting. If your child arrives at 8:00 a.m. or after, please be sure to bring your child to the main entrance and come inside with your child to sign him/her in for the day. This is a safety measure for our students, as we need to make sure we know when students have arrived and can accurately account for them with our attendance in the morning.

All car riders should arrive by 7:55 a.m. on Grove Avenue. Upon arrival, students go to either the primary playground (kindergarten-2nd grade) or intermediate playground (3rd - 5th grade) for our morning recess from 7:40 a.m. - 7:55 a.m. Supervisors are on the playgrounds in the morning starting at 7:40 a.m.  

Winter Benchmarking Continues THIS Week - Please Make Sure iPads are Updated

All students in grades 2-5 participate in the MAP Assessments for both reading and math. MAP assessments begin this week. The district has rolled out the new iOS update of 16.2. Please make sure that your child updates their school device before Tuesday to be prepared for MAP assessments. Also, make sure to check your student's storage. You can remove any apps that your child is no longer using. Please have them go through their Photos and Videos and delete whatever is not school related. 

Grove is also piloting the Fastbridge MySaebrs assessment (a social, academic, emotional screener), so students in 2nd-5th grade will participate in this assessment in January. I have included a link directly to the district letter with details regarding our assessments for your convenience. Please reach out to your child’s teacher or Mrs. Matthews with any questions.
