Dear Butcher-Greene families,
As many of you are aware, and as was shared in our March newsletter, we will begin administering the MAP (Missouri Assessment Program) test the weeks of April 21-May 16. The first week will begin with our 5th graders taking the Communication Arts sessions. They will be joined by our 3rd and 4th graders the following week. Please note the April calendar, found in the April newsletter, for subjects tested each week. We know our students are well-prepared, but your encouragement is always appreciated. Please be sure your child gets a good night’s rest and a healthy breakfast! Talk with them about how they think they did and encourage them to always attempt all questions. If your 3rd-5th grade student has perfect attendance throughout the entire testing dates, they will be rewarded with an ice cream party. We will also have an assembly on the 21st of April for our kick-off to testing. Helpful test-taking skills will be shared with the rest of the student body and our students who performed Proficient or Advanced last year will be recognized. We are so proud of their accomplishments! You may have noticed their pictures displayed in our downstairs hallway.
Thanks to all of you who plan to attend our third quarter Awards assemblies on April 1st. The students always appreciate your attendance and support! We have many who will receive awards and they continue to work hard as we enter the last quarter of the school year. In the April newsletter you will find the names of students who will be recognized.
We just received notification of our 5th grade students who earned ribbons at the Greater Kansas City Science Fair! Fifth grade parents know all the hard work our students and teachers put in to the research projects and display boards! We are so proud of their work! Announcements of award winners and their pictures can also be found in the April newsletter.
As we enter the last quarter of the school year, you can still find many opportunities to come to our school and to get involved. Be sure to note the April calendar and continue to daily check your child’s backpack for informational flyers! Be sure to join us on April 9th at 10:45a.m. as we celebrate the Grandview School District’s 100th year with a balloon launch/release! And don’t forget our Kindergartener students, third graders, and Honor Choir will be featured in our Spring Concert/Art Exhibit on April 15th at 7:00p.m!
This school year is just flying by! As always, we so appreciate your continued support as we work together in meeting your child’s educational needs. Feel free to contact our office at any time with any questions that may arise and know that you are always welcome to come and join us!
