Principal's Message - March 2015
Dear Caribou Community,
It was wonderful to see all of you during our Parent Teacher Conferences. We had well over 90% participation! It’s a wonderful thing for our children to see that we all work together as a team, so that they get the best possible education.
Winter is on the downhill run, although we may still be in for some interesting weather. So we are asking that students continue to be prepared for the possibility of winter weather, which means full gear available here at school. With the rapid change in temperatures, it is especially important that students be prepared for anything.
Our loop drive traffic is getting smoother. Please be careful to pull up in the loop as quickly as possible so that others can enter the drive. We cannot block Ravens Way.
Students have been working hard on Science Fair projects and we would like to invite you to come and see them on Thursday evening, March 5th, from 5-6:30, during our Science and Literacy Night. We will be having reading activities, along with a silent auction, snacks for sale, and a public viewing of our student’s fine work on scientific projects. You won’t want to miss out on this great opportunity.
By now, you have heard that our state and district is moving to a computerized model of state assessments. Our window for Alaska Measures of Progress (AMP) as it’s called, is from March 30-April 10. 3rd and 5th graders are scheduled to be testing in the first week, and 4th and 6th graders are scheduled to be testing in the second week. Your child’s teacher will have more information as to specific dates and times. Please stay in close touch with them so your child will not miss out on this important event.
Don’t forget to set your clocks ahead on March 8 for Daylight Savings Time!
