(Editor's Note: The wrong Letter from Principal Erin Peoples appeared in last week's News. This is the correct version. The News regrets the error.)

State testing is in full swing here at West School. We have given ELA tests to 3rd and 4th graders. Here is the testing schedule for the remainder of the April and May.

Third Grade:

Math- April 25 and 26

Fourth Grade:

Math- April 27 and 28

Social Studies- May 4 and 5

Fifth Grade:

ELA- April 21 and 22

Math- May 2 and 3

Science- May 9 and 10

Students will be testing in the morning each day and each test will last anywhere from 75-90 minutes. Students take these tests online using a Chromebook. Please make sure students get to school on time (the tardy bell rings at 8:15 a.m.) as we start testing first thing in the morning.

We are planning to have Grandparent Breakfast in May! Grandparents are invited to come and enjoy breakfast at school with their grandchild. We will be serving French toast sticks, sausage links, juice, milk and coffee. Cost for adults is $3. West School students are free. Fliers will be sent home with students. Please return the RSVP or call the office so we can plan accordingly.

Grandparent Breakfast will be on the following dates:

May 9- Preschool, second grade, Miss Lefler's class

May 10- Preschool, third grade

May 11- fourth grade

May 12th- fifth grade
