First graders are taking the MAPS testing this month beginning Jan. 14th– Feb. 8th.  It is very important that students are well rested and at school on time.  First grade is collecting cereal boxes, so please save any that you may have.  We will decorate them at the end of the month during Catholic Schools Week for our valentine boxes.   There is a new book order coming home today and is due on Friday!  Students are improving in their math timed tests.  Please have your child review the test included in the homework folder and practice to improve fluency.
