    Dear Fantastic Firebird Families,

    Attached is next week's newsletter with specific dates for our state testing.

    Last year, the 4th grade teachers had a wonderful idea that we'd like to repeat this year. 

    The 2nd attachment below will explain in detail- we'd like you to write a few words to your child encouraging them before they test next week. I will send an envelope home with them today and a copy of the 2nd attachment. You can add inspirational, motivational messages to let them know you're rooting for their success. Send back the sealed envelope with your letter/s in it by Monday so we have them before our first test on Tuesday morning.

    Thank you so much for making this a positive and memorable experience for your child. We appreciate you!

    Thank you in advance!

    The 5th Grade GP Teachers
