Dear Parents,


     Spring is here and a great activity that we recommend for you to do with your children is to take them to the Festival of Books at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.  The Festival will take place on Saturday & Sunday, April 21 & 22, 2018, and admission is free. There will be many activities for children such as musical & cultural performances, painting & much more.


Testing:  Our students will begin testing on the State Test (Smarter Balance Assessment Consortium).  Please make sure they come to school daily and on time, have a good breakfast and that they go to bed at a reasonable time so they can do well on the tests.  The State test will be from April 9 to May 29. Thank you parents for supporting our students during this time.


BREAKFAST -- the most important meal of the day, served in the cafeteria 8:00 to 8:25 am
