Submitted by joann.kirk on Sun, 04/14/2013 - 20:52

April Student of the Month Assembly began with videos of each of the classes singing songs that will prepare them for the CRTs that begin April 15. Mrs. Reynolds reminded the students of some test taking strategies that will help them be successful. Students were reminded to get a good night’s rest, eat a good breakfast and be to school on time. “We will, we will rock you,” sang the first graders. The fourth graders are proficient and they know it. The fifth graders are going to show the CRTs who’s boss. And the sixth graders are not stressing out.
