Mrs. Walker’s Blog Bits

It is hard to believe that it is already the second week of March.  Students at Amelia Elementary have missed the maximum number of calamity days aloud by the state.  The exception to this is morning kindergarten students.  AM kindergarten will be required to make-up three days due to the two-hour delays.  If you have a morning kindergarten student, more information will be sent home soon regarding our make-up plan.  Keep your fingers crossed for no more snow!

The district has scheduled testing dates for the Ohio Achievement Assessments (OAA) taking place in April for students in grades 3-5.  The reading test will be administered on April 20th, the math test will be April 22nd, and the science test (5th grade only) will take place on April 27th.  It is important that all students be in school on testing days unless they are ill.  Please schedule appointments for after school hours.
