A message from the principal ......

Happy Spring Petsworth Patriots! 

It is hard to believe that the 1st of May is upon us! As we dig into the last 9 weeks of school, there are many exciting events/activities planned, not to mention SOL testing. Our testing schedule begins on Monday, May 21st. The schedule is in the table as follows: (please note that these are not in date order!)

SOL table

PLEASE be sure that your child is adequately prepared each day with a good night’s rest and a balanced breakfast. It is also equally important that your child attend school and arrive on time. Testing begins promptly after breakfast and students need to be in their “natural” learning environment when testing vs. a make-up test. Make-up testing will occur the day your child returns to school.

Again this school year, we have the opportunity to provide students in grades 3-5 with “expedited retakes.” Please see page 3 of this newsletter for more information about the retakes.

Thank you for all you do each day and night to best prepare your child for school! Your continued support at home with homework and our school wide expectations, in all grade levels, is greatly appreciated.

Report cards came home on April 18th. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s progress, please contact his/her teacher(s). We are here to help you at home just as much as your student. We reinforce our motto as “Proud, Positive and Productive” patriots each day with students!

We hope everyone has a terrific final quarter of the school year! Keep working hard Patriots!

Cathy Balderson, Principal
Petsworth Elementary School May/June 2018
