May flowers...and crazy events ahead!

        End of Level Testing is going well.  Thank you for sending your child to school well fed and rested.  It is too late now to take Language Arts and Science Utips Tests, since we have taken the LA and Science End of Level tests.  Students can still take Math Utips tests until Thursday morning,
May 9.  Please help them set aside the time to take these tests.    Students will perform much better on the "real" thing, if they do the practice tests.  Thanks!

        You saw the letter we sent home last week, so you know what a crazy schedule we have in May.

       Have I told you lately what an outstanding group of students I have?   Thank you for sharing your most precious "possessions" with me--your children.   I have watched them grow throughout the past nine months, and I have grown to love them.   I feel like they are my second family.  I have given all my energies to building them academically, and I hope they have grown in character, as well.

       I feel I have also gained friends in you.  Thank you for supporting me and making this a wonderful year.     Now-- are you ready for Cedar Middle School?

          Thanks again,
        --Jeanne Payne
