Dear Parents/Guardians:


Where did the school   year go? We only have two more months   of school! Time flies when you are having fun!


Last month was busy!   We sent surveys home with a select group of students. Please return them to   your child’s teacher if you have not done so already. These surveys provide   us invaluable feedback on how we are doing.


Nancy, from Growing   Healthy Kids presented to all of our classes about making healthy choices.   Ask your child about what he/she is learning in this class.


Our VPK students have   completed the second round of assessments and they are doing amazing! Please   continue to read with your child at home at least 30 minutes per day. This   helps increase vocabulary and encourages a love for reading.  


We finished our last   Krispy Kreme fundraiser for the school year. Great job to all and a big,   heartfelt thank-you goes out to our Boosters, students and parents who made   our Krispy Kreme fundraiser a huge success. Congratulations to our top   sellers! Hollen Lyons (Miss Amanda’s class) for New Horizons and Ahmarion   Mann (Cora Stokes’ class) for DeSoto Early Childhood Center!
