Dear Parents,

Standardized Testing Week - April 16 - 19

This week students will be taking the Stanford Achievement Tests. We ask that you do not plan any doctor or dental appointments for this week. In addition, it is important that students get adequate rest and eat a nutritious breakfast each morning. If you would like to send in healthy snacks for the middle and high school students to have during testing week, that would be fantastic.

There is no chapel on Wednesday - students may wear regular uniform clothing instead of chapel wear.

Field Day - Friday, April 20

Field Day is back! On Friday, April 20, the school will come together out on the front field to have some fun in the sun! A flier was sent home last Friday with the details including teams, attire, and things the students need to bring on that day. Set up begins at 8:00 A.M., and Mr. Ortiz is looking for some willing parents to help him get the supplies out on the field and set up for the events. Please consider being a part of this exciting event. If you are able and willing to serve in this way, please contact Mr. Ortiz directly at

Fall Family Skate Night - Monday, April 23 

Invite your family and friends to Rollerland in Roseville. We hope to see you there at 6:30 P.M. - great exercise and a great time!
