May 18 - Vaughan School News

We are really feeling like things are wrapping up for the year. Students in grades 3 – 5 completed their Reading and Math End-of-Grade Tests last week. Students that made a level 2 or 1 have already begun their remediation to prepare for retakes during the first week of June. Parents, you should have already received some preliminary scoring data to inform you of how your child performed. If you did not, please contact your child's teacher. If your child will retake their Reading or Math End-of-Grade tests, please work with them each and every night until retesting. Fifth grade students will have taken their Science End-of-Grade Tests on Tuesday, May 19. We look forward to receiving preliminary results from those tests as well.

Last Friday our Pre-K students participated in their May Day. They really had a great time with some of the physical fitness activities outside. They enjoyed a special sub lunch with their parents in the multi-purpose room. Mrs. Barnes and Mrs. Watson certainly did a wonderful job taking care of everything! These same Pre-K students will be having their Celebration Ceremony on June 1, 2009 at 10 AM in the multi-purpose room. It will be so exciting to see our “baby eagles” preparing to move on up to Kindergarten.

As we are moving closer and closer to the end of the school year, it is time to start turning in library books. If your child has lost a book, please help them look for it if at all possible. Students who have missing books will need to take responsibility for losing the book and pay the replacement cost. Thank you for helping your child with this task.
