Good Evening Parents and Students.  I hope everyone had a good Memorial Day weekend.

Testing continues this week.  On Tuesday, May 31st, 3rd graders take the Math EOG and Mr. Phelps’ classes take the science NCFE.  On Wednesday, June 1st, 4th – 8th graders take the Reading EOG.  On Thursday, June 2nd, 4th – 8th graders take the Math EOG.  On Friday, June 3rd, 6th – 8th graders take the social studies NCFE.  Parents, it is very important that students get a good night’s rest every night so that they will be ready for these tests.  Also, if your child does not eat breakfast at school, please make sure he/she eats breakfast at home on testing mornings.  We have been hard at work preparing for these tests and we want students to be able to do their very best.

Testing continues the following week with the 3rd grade Read to Achieve retest on June 6th, the English I NCFE for 8th graders taking English I on Tuesday, June 7th, and the Math I EOC on Wednesday, June 8th for 8th graders taking Math I.  All testing dates are posted on the online calendar on the school’s website at cssk8.wordpress.com.

Our end of year events are also listed on the calendar.  Middle School FFA Awards are on Monday, June 6th at 12:00 in the media center.  All other ceremonies will be held in the big gym.  Middle School Awards day is Monday, June 6th at 1:00.  Elementary Awards Day is Thursday, June 9th.  1st and 2nd grades will hold their Awards Day at 8:30 and Kindergarten will hold theirs at 10:00.  5th grade will hold their Awards Day at 1:00.  8th grade promotion is scheduled for June 10th at 9:00.  We hope you will be able to join us for our end of year events.

We are still collecting books for our Give 5 Read 5 program.  We do not have many books at this point.  Please consider donating books that are appropriate for Kindergarten – 5th graders so that we will be able to send home five books with each elementary child for the summer.  You may drop off book or money donations in the front office.

We still have a few yearbooks available for sale.  Please contact the school office if you are interested in purchasing a yearbook.

I hope everybody has a wonderful week and Go Cougars!
