Mansion Avenue » Principal's Note
It is May, we are half way through the final marking period, and there is still so much to do and learn. May is a very critical month for us here at Mansion Avenue School. We will be testing all our students in Grades 3-6 on the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge. Students in Grades 5 and 6 will have testing Monday through Thursday starting on May 6 and finishing on May 9. Our students in Grades 3 and 4 will be taking the test Monday through Thursday, May 13 to 16. Students in Grade 4 will have the Science portion given to them on Friday, May 17.
It is important to us not only that your child do the best they can, but that they understand that you care about how well they do. To help your child do their best please be sure they get a good night's sleep, have something for breakfast and are here on time. A snack will be provided to the students at the end of the test each day. I know you have heard it before but it is very important that we all give a great effort.
Our Third Graders will be going on their class trip on May 10. The Safety Patrol trip to Washington, D.C. is on May 16 and 17. The PTA will be sponsoring a Book Fair during the week of May 20 to 23. Our Spring Concerts are on May 21 for the choir and May 23 for our band. The concerts are in the high school auditorium. More information will be forthcoming about these events.
We will be holding our annual "Moving Up" Day on May 23. Students in grades K- 5 will move up one grade level that day to get a sneak peak at their new surroundings for next year. Grade 6 will be scheduled at a later time. School is closed on May 24 and 27 for Memorial Day weekend. It is going to be a very busy Spring!!
Finally, June will arrive. There are a number of events already planned for June. The Sixth Grade class trip to Philadelphia is on June 5. The students are going on a historical tour of Olde City Philadelphia. Then it will be off to Citizens Bank Park for a tailgate lunch and a Phillies game. Our 12:45 dismissal days will begin on June 14. We have scheduled field day for the grade levels on the following days: June 14 - Grade 4, June 17 - Grade 3, June 18 - Grade 5, and June 19 - Grade 6. Our 6th Grade Promotion will be held on June 18 in the high school auditorium. The last day for students will be June 19 and report cards go home that day.
I want to thank each and everyone who have made my years here in Audubon so rewarding. I leave with many fond memories of the people and events that have taken place here over the last thirteen years. I feel I have done a good job for the children of this school district. Thanks for the great opportunity!
Until next time, see you around the neighborhood.
