Principal's Letter 4-9-2021

From the Principal…

Greetings Bluff Creek Families!

Our first week back has been very busy! Students are settling back into routines and our third, fourth and fifth graders are preparing to take the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments over the next two weeks.

Parents of third, fourth and fifth grade students should note the dates of the MCA testing. It is important that students attend school during testing.  We ask that parents have patience if leaving phone messages during the day; teachers will not be answering phones during actual testing sessions.

MCA Testing Dates:

MCA Reading for Grades 3,4, and 5 April 13th, 14th and 15th

MCA Math for Grades 3,4, and 5 April 20th, 21st and 22nd

MCA Science for Grade 5 ONLY- May 4th

 On Wednesday, April 14th, we will have our official kickoff to prepare for our Bluff Creek PTO Fun Run!  Our sports theme goal will also have daily messages that support our social/emotional learning! Our school goal is to raise $15,000 which will help support BCE learning opportunities and help our school begin planning our next “big project” sponsored by the PTO.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Warmly,

Joan MacDonald
