the summer. To assist you in this endeavor, on June 12, June 26th, July 10th, July 24th, August 7th and August 21st from noon to 2:00 Mrs. Gunderson will have the Library open. In addition, your child can come in to take an AR test on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 8:00-4:00 or Thursdays from 8:00-noon. Any AR tests taken in the summer will count for 1st quarter.
For early elementary students, doing math flash cards will help. Knowing their addition, subtraction, division and multiplication facts by heart will pay dividends in your child’s education. For upper elementary and middle school students, it is also important to keep those multiplication and division facts sharp. If your child is in middle schooler, continued practice with fractions and geometry will be very beneficial.

We are continuing to move forward with the designing of the new middle school. The committee, made up of community members, parents, teachers, board members and administrators, has been meeting every two to three weeks since February. It is a long process, but we are planning on going for bids in December or January and breaking ground soon after. It will be a 14-18 month building process, so we are expecting to move into the new building in the Fall of 2020. I will be updating the community throughout the summer as the process moves forward. We are planning on having a community forum in the fall to share the design with you and to gain feedback from you. Once we have solidified a date for that forum, I will be sending out flyers to notify the taxpayers.
I hope everyone has a fun and relaxing summer and is able to enjoy plenty of family time.
