I hope you all had a great Easter Weekend and a great Monday! We worked hard today and started talking about the upcoming MAP test and Earth Day today! Here are some updates about some important events and dates coming up in the next few weeks!!!!
We have some AWESOME ladies that run our office here at Willard East! We wouldn’t be able to operate without these ladies! This week we will celebrate secretaries day AND Nurse’s Day! They are our HEROES so in honor of them, we are inviting the school to dress like “superheroes” on Wednesday! Be sure to give Mrs. Angie, Mrs. Tommie, and Nurse Christina a big THANK YOU for all they do for us when you see or talk to them this week!!!
On May 16, Willard East third graders will travel to Diamond, Mo to the George Washington Carver National Monument! This is an awesome field trip where we learn about the life of a famous inventor from our state! Money and signed permission slip is due BY May 13th.
The cost is $8 per child.
Next week, your child will be taking the MAP (Missouri Assessment Program) test. This is our
state test. Check with your child to make sure their headphones/ earbuds are in working conditions.
This test will cover standards and skills learned in 3rd grade this year. We will test Thursday, May 2nd and Friday May 3rd of next week. And May 7th and 8th of the following week.
How can you help your child be ready?
This group is the first class that has taken the NWEA three times during the school year. I think after doing that, they are feeling okay with testing. And they should! Most kids don’t mind taking the MAP.
Our school spring concert is coming up! Join the students of Willard East Elementary at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, April 30th at the High School Gym. Students will need to arrive at 6:30. Each grade level will sing 2 songs each. Dress in your “spring best” and we’ll see you there!!!
