Kindergartners learned about Martin Luther King, Jr. and the importance of treating everyone with kindness and respect no matter what they look like on the outside. Kindergartners learned that what really matters is who we are on the inside.
The halfway point of the 2020 - 2021 school year is upon us! That also means midyear testing will be taking place. Testing should not bring about fear or worry. Instead, it should be looked at as an opportunity to show what one knows and to discover what needs to be learned yet. Having a good attitude and trying to relax is very important. Good luck to all Blue Jays as they get to proudly show what they know!
