Spring has sprung at Saguaro and our students have blossomed so much since the beginning of the year. This month, they will be participating in the AzMERIT state assessments to show all that they have learned. We are confident that they will do great and focus on performing at their personal best! This year students will take a paper based assessment in lieu of the computerized assessment. Testing for grades 3-5 begins on April 3 for the Writing portion, April 4 is Reading 1, Math 1, and April 5 is Reading 2, Math 2. Please do your best to ensure students arrive on time and are not checked out early on these days. All fourth grade students will be taking the AIMS Science test on the computer. Testing dates are April 11 for Mrs. Baker's class, April 12 for Mrs. Bates's class and April 13 for Mrs. Ullrich's class.
During April, it is very important that students are present at school. Please be sure to schedule any doctor appointments and dentist appointments after the school day has ended. The tests are not timed and students are able to work all day if that is what they need. In addition to being present, it is important that students are fed and get an ample amount of sleep prior to testing. Healthful snack donations are always welcomed to provide students nourishment between sessions and after testing. Breakfast is always free for all students. Breakfast will also be served in the classroom for the classes who are testing each day. We want to make sure that our students have the best chance for success!
Saguaro Annual School Carnival will take place on April 20, from 5:00-7:00, our theme is Trolls! We will have many new games as well as the ones that we have all come to love over the years. Concessions will be available and we will have many items up for raffle. Each grade level will be putting together two baskets, Walmart DC has donated a $250.00 check, Premier Orthodontics will be here with their cotton candy machine and there will even be an Origami Owl locket available in the raffle.
