  • The Simpson Source for February 10, 2016

    In lieu of Valentine’s Day classroom parties, we will be celebrating the CR School District’s 100th Anniversary on Tuesday, February 16th with a fun school-wide assembly (sponsored by the PTO) and classroom parties that will have a birthday theme.  If students are adamant on distributing valentine cards, they may do so on Friday, February 12th during their morning meeting time. This will not be a secret party, but a quick distribution of cards for the students to take home.  Thank you for your understanding and support.

    A Note from the Principal:  Our students in grades 3-5 will begin taking a computerized practice test in order to prepare for the spring administration of the Smarter Balanced State Assessment.  This information will help teachers identify their students’ strengths and weakness in reading and mathematics.  This will allow our staff to fine tune their instruction in order for all students to perform at or above grade level.  The practice test will also help to ease any student testing anxieties because it will expose the students to the formatting and rigor of the actual Smarter Balanced Test.   Although we want the students to take it seriously, this is a practice test.  It is not graded.  We have followed this type of procedure for the past few years with DCAS and Smarter Balanced with great results.  As a staff, we feel this is incredibly beneficial.  If you have any questions, please feel free to give me a call at 302-697-3207.
