Dear Parents and Guardians,
I hope you all had a restful and family-filled spring break. Spring is in bloom here at Aldene with beautiful cherry blossoms sprouting all over the school yard, The students arrived this morning looking rested and ready to get back to work!
In April we will focus on the character trait of acceptance. At our monthly all-school assembly, Ms. Lopez' and Ms. O'Neill's classes will share a presentation on what acceptance is and how we can all be accepting of others. Students will work with a new friend to create a 'garden of acceptance' that will be placed in the hallways. Please look for it when you come to Aldene.
PARCC testing will begin on Monday, April 24, for students in grades 5. Please make sure your child has a good night's sleep and a healthy breakfast to ensure he or she is well prepared for the test.
Please make note of the following important dates for April:
April 20 - Grade 3 trip to the Manasquan Reservoir
April 21 - Report Cards go home
April 24-26, 28 - Grade 5 PARCC testing
April 25 - Kindergarten Registration
As always, feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
