Happy Friday!

Thank you to everyone who came out to eat at Purple Cow on Tuesday! It was so much fun to get to see East Village families outside of school and it was a great way to raise money for our school! Also, we want to thank everyone who came to the Poetry Slam! Our students worked so hard to create poems, and it was awesome to get to see them present! We are so proud of our students!

We know our students will do great, but to help them, we ask that you avoid scheduling any appointments on those days, so they can be here all day. Students in 3rd and 6th grade will test April 23rd, 24th, and 25th. Students in 4th and 5th grade will test April 30th, May 1st, and May 2nd.
