  • New Year

    Posted by Marsha Hough at 1/5/2017 9:30:00 AM


    Happy New Year! Welcome to 2017!  As we surmount upon a new year, we continue to prepare our students diligently  for their upcoming standardized tests. We ask for our parents to continue to support our efforts at school as we continue to challenge our students and to encourage higher order thinking.  The SDE testing website has excellent resources for students/teachers/parents for every state testing program. There are different web-pages for each testing program that include very helpful links, including sample items, scoring rubrics, and test blueprints. Please take an opportunity to view the SDE website to learn about what is required of our students.

    Educationally yours,

     

    Mrs. Benson

  • New Year

    Posted by Marsha Hough at 9/20/2016

    We are off to a great start for the 2016-2017 school year.  We are in the process of bringing our World’s Finest Chocolate sale to an end, and we would like to thank everyone for their support of this great fundraiser.  We are in the process of trying to gather information concerning an after-school program at our school.  Please complete the attached survey and provide us with your feedback.

    Also, our school is funded by Title 1, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).  Therefore, we must outline our responsibilities along with those of our parents and students.  We are asking that you sign the School-Parent Compact and return it to school by September 8, 2016.  We are in a partnership to improve our students’ academic achievement and to help our children achieve the state’s high standards. Once again, thank you for your continued support.

     

    Educationally yours,

     

    Mrs. Benson

  • Holiday Season

    Posted by Estelle Benson at 11/22/2015

    The Holiday season has approached us, and it is a very exciting time of the year.  Nevertheless, we want to remind our students that we continue to have a lot more standards to cover before our Winter Break.  We need for everyone to remind focused and to keep pushing forward.  Parents, we continue to ask for your support as we move forward with rigor in our daily instruction.  It is with our partnership that our students will continue to excel and grow.

    As we move forward with technology, we will begin in January to send our school newsletter home electronically via email.  Therefore, we ask that you make sure that you have an email address on file in the office so you will not miss out on this fabulous publication.  We will include important information from the school as well as information from each class along with pictures from each class in our newsletter. 

    We are excited about the wonderful things happening in our school.  Our mission every day is to be always caring, always positive, and always learning.

  • Dictionary Day

    Posted by Estelle Benson at 11/5/2015

    It is November, and time is moving swiftly.  Last week, our students participated in our First Annual Dictionary Day.  It was a lot of fun.  The students came to school dressed in a visual representation of a vocabulary word in which they have studied in their classroom.  Not only were they able to develop a personal meaning of their assigned word, but they gained knowledge of over one hundred words being visibly represented on this day in a creative and awesome way.

     

    Our second grade students are involved in taking standardized tests this week.  They will take the Cognitive Abilities Test also known as CoGAT on November 2-4, and they will take the Iowa Test of Basic Skills also known as ITBS on November 5-6 . These tests are norm-reference aptitude and achievement tests that are used for selection into the Gifted and Talented program. All students in grade two are required to take these tests. It is important for our students to be in attendance and on time for school every day, especially during testing. Please be sure that your child gets plenty of rest the night before and eats a healthy breakfast.

     

    We have missed several days during the first nine weeks due to inclement weather.  Parents, we need your continued support in helping to encourage our students to keep pushing forward.  We have many standards to cover to adequately prepare our students for their end of the year standardized tests.  Once again, thanks for all you do in support of our school.

    Mrs. Benson, Principal

  • Welcome back to school!

    Posted by Estelle Benson at 8/16/2015

    Principal Estelle Benson Welcome to school, where we are Always Caring, Always Positive, and Always Learning.  We are excited about the 2015-2016 school year.  Our focus this year will incorporate rigor in our lessons and assessments.

    The beginning of the year is always exciting, and we want our students to “make their marks” daily.  We challenge our students to be brave, creative, and to learn something new every day.

    We look forward in continuing to develop partnerships with our parents and the community.  These relationships are vital in the growth of our students.  It indeed takes a village to raise a child.  Thank you for your support in making this a great school.

    Mrs. Benson, Principal
