Parent 5Essentials Survey

Posted March 27th, 2014 by Judy Meyer Hays

Please read this letter regarding the 5Essentials Survey.   You can take a survey for each school where you have a child (early childhood through high school). However, the state asks that only one parent per household take the survey. We want to promote this because we won’t receive results unless at least 30 percent of our parents take the survey. We will make computers available if you would like to take the survey at Armstrong. We thank you in advance for your feedback!

A Message from Mrs. Lipman

Posted March 22nd, 2014 by Judy Meyer Hays

Our students had a fantastic time during Spring Parties this past Friday.  Thank you to the parents and volunteers who planned the events and provided supplies for the parties.  As Mrs. Dvoracek and I visited classrooms, we were impressed with the creative themes we saw!  From Minute to Win It, Candy Land, a luau, minecraft, Olympics, rockstars, and even a circus, it was a great way to kick off Spring Break!  We hope you enjoy the extra time next week with your child(ren) and we look forward to everyone returning on Monday, March 31 refreshed and ready to learn!
