Thank you to all families who were able to join us for Culver’s Night last month; it was a huge success!

Special thanks to all PTA volunteers who helped with our first “Gym Jam” last Friday.  We had over 125 4th-6th Graders dancing the night away and having a wonderful time.  We plan to have two such dances next year, one in the fall and one in the spring.  These events would not be possible without all of our volunteers, so thank you!

Please also mark your calendars for the upcoming school musical, “Lights, Camera, Action!”, which will be on Thursday, April 30th and Friday, May 1st at 6:30 PM in the gym.

PARCC End-of-Year Testing will take place the week of April 27th through May 1st for 3rd-6th Graders.  I will send out a detailed schedule in my email update later this week.

Attached you will also find the PTA Nominating Committee Report.  PTA will be having a general membership meeting on Wednesday, May 6th, at 6:15.  This is immediately prior to Open House and the Science Fair, which will run from 6:30 until 8:00 PM on Wednesday, May 6th.  More information on this will be detailed in future emails.

Have a wonderful rest of the week with  your families!

Nerge Updates 4.2.15

Posted April 2nd, 2015 by Steve Schneider

Good morning fantastic Nerge community!

Just a reminder that there is no school tomorrow.

Starting next week, we will begin our Spring session of MAP testing.  Students have used the fall and winter MAP scores to set goals for the spring session.  We are eagerly anticipating the students’ success in reaching their goals.  Students understand that it takes daily determination and hard work to achieve any goal, and they have certainly risen to the challenge.  Please take some time to talk with your child and encourage them to relax and do their best.  We like to encourage students to be focused and confident, approaching the test with the knowledge that they are well prepared to be successful.   Attached is a schedule for testing so that you can plan any appointments accordingly.

MAP Schedule Spring 2015

Important Dates

April 3—No School

April 6-May 1 – MAP Testing

April 21 – PTA Meeting, 7:00 PM in teachers’ lounge

Thank you for all that you do to support your children, and have a wonderful long weekend with your families!
