Parents of students in grades 3, 4 and 5---- Upcoming PARCC testing is in March. Please save the dates and make sure your child is in school, ON TIME during testing. Your child performs their best when they have a good night's sleep, a healthy breakfast, and arrive to school on time. Students and teachers have been teaching and learning with chromebooks and are very excited about the technological advances in instruction and learning. Students are getting more and more comfortable using an online system for test taking. Students who are absent during testing days will be required to make up testing and will take the test with a teacher they are not familiar with which can cause children to be anxious since it is out of their normal routine. It is beneficial to your child if you make appointments outside of the school day! If you know your child will not be in school on one of the following dates, please call us!
Dates for testing:
Grade 3 March 17, 18, 20, 25, 26
Grade 4 March 16, 18, 19, 24, 26
Grade 5 March 16, 17, 19, 24, 25

Curvin McCabe students and teacher have been talking about personal hygiene as a part of health. We've been discussing how our bodies and teeth need to be cared for each day to stay clean and healthy.
Here are the important points we've gone over:
1. Take a bath or shower each day.
2. Use soap and shampoo during each shower or bath.
3. Put on clean clothes in the hamper.
4. Put dirty/worn clothes in the hamper.
5. Brush/Floss teeth as least twice a day (morning/before bed)
6. Brush hair each morning before leaving the house.
7. Take care of fingernails/toenails, by keeping them clean and trimmed.
8. Before dressing, put deodorant on your underarms to prevent odor.
This is especially important on Phys. Ed. Days!
Many parents can't believe that their children are ready to begin wearing deodorant. Believe it or not, even as young as 3rd grade, children perspire and have body odor. To prevent embarrassment and often cruel comments from peers, it's important that the above steps are enforced at a young age and practiced daily, so your child can get into a healthy routine.
Thank you for your attention in helping to reinforce healthy hygiene habits!
Students in grades 3, 4 and 5 will be taking the PARCC Computer Based Test during the month of March. It is important to make sure your child is IN SCHOOL, ON TIME, during testing.
