FAREWELL TO ANOTHER GREAT YEAR!
We’re heading toward the final stretch as we wrap up another great year at Nuffer Elementary School! I am proud that our school has continued to provide your child with a quality program and have remained true to our school’s vision.
As a result of our rigorous standards-based curriculum, students have continued to show consistent growth. Students in the 3rd – 5th grades just completed the Common Core pilot assessment in May. Because this was a test of the test, we won’t receive results, but we surely did learn how we need to change our instruction.
Nothing is more evident of our success than to see the number of students who will be receiving Academic Awards for the third trimester. Students in the 1st and 2nd grades will have their Academic Awards Ceremony on Monday, June 16th at 8:30 a.m., and students in the 3rd and 4th grades will have their Academic Awards Ceremony on Monday, June 16th at 1:30 p.m. Teachers will send home notifications if your child is receiving an award.
Our Promotion Ceremonies are on the last day of school, Wednesday, June 18th. Our 5th grade students will promote at 8:30 a.m. on the blacktop, and our kinders will promote at 10:30 a.m. We have special performances and awards planned during both promotions. I look forward to seeing parents at these events to watch their children shine!
Yes, indeed, this has been a great year! Our teachers and staff have been dedicated to providing our students with the best; and in turn, our parents have been committed to ensuring that their children arrive daily and are prepared to learn. Our students’ success is a collaborative effort that reaps great rewards for years to come, so thank you for doing your part!
The last day of school is a minimum day on Wednesday, June 18th. I wish you a relaxing and fun-filled summer, and I will see you on Thursday, September 4th, the first day of the 2014 – 2015 school year!
