MAY 2017
Dear parents, guardians and students,

This month we are still waiting for that weather to warm up.

We have have seen some nice days but would like to see them more consistent. It is also wonderful to see that students have returned from vacation rested and refreshed and ready to learn for six more weeks.

SBAC testing continues through this month and we also turn our attention to NWEA testing for Grades 1-2, NECAP Science for Grade 4 and Reader’s Workshop Benchmark assessments for all grades.

We were also excited to welcome our new Kindergarten students this month for our Kindergarten orientation. This is such an exciting time for us all at Derry Village as we meet the children and parents who will be joining our community.

We also recognize staff this month. They do a most wonderful job and this week we have the opportunity to recognize each and every one of them for their effort. Thank you to all our parent volunteers who have organized staff recognition events and treats.

Yours in education, 

Chris McCallum
