Sunset Book Exchange May 31st- June 2nd


It is time for our 7th Annual Used Book Exchange. We will be collecting books May 16 - May 26 including at our school’s Open House.  This is a great way for you to “reduce, reuse and recycle” by turning in used children’s books in good condition and exchanging them for books other students have turned in. The Used Book Exchange will be open during library class time only May 31 - June 2.  For every two books a student turns in, they can choose one book at the exchange (up to five free books).   Flyers will be sent out with details of this successful program.  This awesome program is brought to us by Cheryl Irwin and our librarian Mrs. Simons.

Note from Mrs. Q

Dear Sunset Families:


We have begun our state testing known as the SBAC testing.  Our 4th graders are currently finishing their week of testing this week on Thursday.  During the week of May 8, 2017 our fifth graders will be testing.  Their test consists of two Language Arts test, two Math tests and a Science test.  This year the Science test is a pilot test, which tests the questions to ensure validity of the test in the next year or so.  We will not receive scores for the Science test this year.  All classrooms will be testing in the morning due to the length of the test and will test all five days during the week.    During the week of the May 15, 2017 our third graders will take the two Language Arts tests and the two Math tests.  Testing for third grade will begin on Monday and end on Thursday of that week.  The testing can often take up to 2 hours.


Please make sure your child has a good night’s sleep before testing and a healthy breakfast.  Please try to avoid morning appointments during testing.  We will have a make up window for those who do miss.


We have been very proud of our fourth graders!  They have tried their best and worked for extended periods of time, which takes a lot of stamina!  We know that 5th grade and 3rdgrade will work just as hard!
