Principal's Message 5.7.21

Dear Families,

Nearly all the MAP testing was completed this week with the exception of our last 1st grade session, which will be on Monday, May 10th.  It was so nice to see the remote students who opted to take the test in-person.  The testing sessions ran very smoothly both in-person and online.  A big thank you to our staff for ensuring that everything went well.

As you know, we partnered with the Buffalo Grove Police Department in support of their Stuff the Squad food and essentials drive.  We had many full boxes of items that stuffed the squad car.  Thank you for your support of our local community members in need.

Lastly, thank you to our PTO for thinking of us so fondly during Teacher Appreciation Week.  The sweet treats and lunch were so thoughtful.  We are grateful to have such supportive families and want you to know that we appreciate your support always and, in particular, during this most unusual school year.
