Istep Day 1

Sent February 27th 2017

ISTEP day 1 is in the books! Students are also coming home with Blobs in a Bottle. Its a mix of vegetable oil, water and food coloring. If you add an AlkaSeltzer tablet, it creates a lava lamp in a bottle. The kids had a blast with these this morning! A video will be on the Mary Castle Facebook page later today. If you turn off the lights and set it on top of a flashlight, its even cooler! Remember, lavender, mints, Mozart and an early bed time this week! :)  ...

Hello families!!! ISTEP begins on Monday. We will test Monday-Wednesday beginning at 9:45. Please make sure your student is at school on time each day!

Please make sure your student is well rested for school, especially next week. If you can, please send in a water bottle for your student. A hydrated brain performs better than a thirsty one! Oth...
