Grades 3-5 End of Grade Testing Begins Next Week

End of Grade Testing for grades 3-5 begins at the end of next week. (See the upcoming dates section at the bottom of this Explorer Express for full dates.) Please make sure your child arrives at school on time and well rested to do their best.

Mrs. Self would like to thank everyone for the donations so far! To have enough for next week, please keep sending in your shoeboxes, small/medium amazon boxes, large tissue boxes (anything that could be used as a base for a marble run), straws, and paper towel rolls. Items will be collected until 5/31.
