Important Message 

Parents, guardians, and extended family members who take care of our precious Arkansas Scholars: We need your help this week! Acuity testing will occur Tuesday 9/29/2015 through Friday 10/2/2015 for 3rd-5th grade. It is vital that each student be present to take the exams. Teachers rely on this initial computerized assessment to help them with their instructional practices.

Thursday, October 1st is our official student count day. I cannot stress enough how IMPORTANT it is to have every student at school on Thursday. We will have games and prizes for students throughout the day. Each class with the highest attendance in their grade level will win lunch and a movie with his or her teacher. Please make sure you have your student is at Arkansas so we can count them for crucial school funding.

With much gratitude,
Ms. Lori Petersen
