Students will be assessed over a three-day period using the CogAT 7 [Cognitive Abilities Test]. Students are not encouraged to study for the CogAT. This tool simply measures how students think logically, not what they have learned in school. If you would like to learn more about GATE or opting out of this assessment, please contact Principal Dean.

Spirit Day Friday - Pajama Day

Friday, January 29

Yes indeed, it’s “Pajama Day” again! Please encourage your child to come to school in jammies! Remember, all attire and shoes must be "school appropriate". No slippers, please. Proper undergarments must be worn. It will be cold, so nightgowns should be paired up with pajama bottoms. Bathrobes are acceptable, in fact they make fine jacket substitutes. All participants should seek out Ms. Greden in the morning near the lunch tables between 8:10 and 8:20am to enter a raffle for prizes. Next month we will be bringing back “Crazy Hair Day” by popular demand. We had some other ideas for February’s Spirit Day, but we have had multiple requests from students and teachers alike to bring back crazy hair! Crazy Hair Day will be on Friday, February 19th.
