A Message from  our Principal

Dear Parents and Guardians,

On Monday, April 20, 2015, our third grade students will begin state testing. The first exam will be the AzMERIT writing exam. Testing will continue on Tuesday, April 21, 2015, with the first portion of the reading and math exam. On Wednesday, April 22, the third grade students will continue with the second portion of the AzMERIT reading and math exams. The exams will start promptly at 7:45 a.m. and end at 2:45 p.m. I ask that in order for your child to have the best testing opportunity, please avoid having your student miss or leave school early. It is essential that your son and/or daughter go to sleep early and arrive to school on time to eat breakfast. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at (520) 287-0880.

Thank you for your attention and support.

Estimado Padre/Tutor,

El lunes 20 de abril los alumnos del tercer grado van a empezar el examen de estado por mandato de AzMerit. El primer examen se enfocara en Escritura. Los exámenes continuaran el martes 21 de abril con la primera parte de los exámenes de lectura y matemáticas. El miércoles 22 de abril de abril completaran la segunda parte de los exámenes de lectura y matemáticas. Los exámenes empiezan a las 7:45 a.m. y se terminan a las 2:45 p.m. Pido que en orden para que su hijo/hija tengan la mejor oportunidad de la prueba, evitar tener su hijo/hija faltar la escuela o salir de la escuela temprano. Es necesario que su hijo/hija se acueste temprano y llegue a la escuela con tiempo para desayunar. Si tiene alguna pregunta o preocupación, favor de comunicarse con Mrs. Bonillas al (520) 287-0880.

Gracias por su atención y apoyo.
