MCAAuthor Kate Messner wrote an open letter to kids on test day that she posted on her blog on Monday, April 15th. We couldn’t have said it any better, so we include the link here.  We’ve got two more days of MCA testing coming up, science will be tested on Monday, April 29 and math is scheduled for Friday, May 3.  MAP testing will take place mid-May.

In Bridges, both groups are working on flushing out scenes for the plays they have chosen. The performance for all Bridges groups is Monday, May 13 at the Children’s Theatre. Students need to be at the theatre by 4:30. The show begins at 6pm. Rides to the theatre and dinner are NOT provided.

audiobooksWe also wanted to include a link to FREE audio books that will be made available in the weeks to come. Click here, to go to audiobooksync.com. Every Thursday during the sumer, beginning May 30th,  they provide two free audio books (one current title, one “classic”).  From Shakespeare and Martin Luther King, Jr. to Maggie Stiefvater and Patricia McCormick, you’ll find something for that road trip or any lazy day of summer (summer is on the way!).
