Happy Friday!

 

I hope that you have had a great week! Our Kindergartners, 1st graders, and 2nd graders worked so hard on their NWEA assessments this week and we saw so much growth in their scores! We are proud of how hard our students work every day to not only grow academically, but also to be positive members of our learning community!

Join us at Purple Cow next Tuesday!

Be sure to eat at the Purple Cow at 8026 Cantrell, Little Rock, 11602 Chenal, Little Rock, or 4201 Warden Rd., North Little Rock from 4:00 pm – 9:00 pm this Tuesday, April 9th and tell them you are from eStem! Part of all sales come back to help our school!


We’re having a Poetry Slam Thursday, April 11th

All 3rd through 6th grade students are encouraged to submit entries to Mrs. Poynter or Mrs. Semple. Anyone is invited to attend and hear these students share their poetry. Our students are so creative and we are excited to hear them share their writing!
