CAASP TESTING (SBAC) APRIL 24th - May 2nd 
Students in grades 3-5 will be taking the CAASP (SBAC) between the dates of April 24th through May 2nd.  Thank you for making sure your child is at school on time. Absenteeism during the test period creates problems for students. Those who miss testing sessions with their regular class will be given make-up sessions in supervised small group settings. However, most students prefer to take the test along with their classmates, and do much better in a setting with their own teacher.
TRRFCC PARENT COFFEE CHAT –APRIL 6th
Please join Mrs. Ziegler for a TRRFCC Parent Coffee Chat in the multipurpose room directly after the TRRFCC Thursday assembly at 8:45 am.  Come see what your students are learning during  X-ploration.  There will also be handouts and prizes on having a Growth Mind Set. 

PASTA FOR PENNIES
Thank you to everyone who has donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma, Pasta for Pennies fundraiser.  In the first two weeks we have raised $2,670.00 dollars. Our goal is to reach at least $3,000.00 and we are on our way to meet that goal.  Friday April 7th is the last day to turn in any money, so keep bringing in that spare change and help us find a cure for cancer. Any classroom that raises $300.00 gets a pizza party and the top class gets a catered lunch from Olive Garden.  Remember that the true winners of this fundraiser are the people who we have helped, people with blood cancer who are trying to live a normal life.  If we can help just one of these people, than we have made a difference.  Thank you all for your generous support

LEGACY HAND TILES AT THE AUCTION
Would you like your student to leave a lasting imprint at Sunset Hills for generations to come?  We will be making (hand pressing) the hand tiles at the Sunset Hills Auction on Friday, May 19th.  Your student’s hand tile will be displayed at the entrance to the school.
The cost for a Legacy Hand Tile is $50.00.  A Keepsake Hand Tile can be yours to take home for an additional $25.00.  Participation will be by pre-sale only.  Return the form to the school office by Friday, May 12th with payment. 
The flyers can be found on Peachjar and in the office.

REMIND
Have you ever come to school and realized that you had forgotten that it was a school spirit day? Would you like to be reminded when there is an event happening at school? There is an app that allows Principal Ziegler to send out texts when there is a change in schedule, reminders or emergencies.  All you have to do is “Opt” in by sending a message to (434) 473-7316.  In the message box, type @allshe.  Follow the text prompt and you will start receiving messages.  Standard text message rates apply. 
TK INTEREST WAIT LIST INFORMATION
Parents of children with a fifth birthday between June 1st and September 1st, 2017, who wish to enroll their child into a TK class, MUST place their name on a District Interest Wait List. After March 1, 2017 at 8:00 AM, go to the District Website and select "TK Interest Wait List" to put your child's name on the list. The assigned TK school site will notify parents on the Interest List starting in June, or later in the summer, of an opening in TK. The parent will then be given 48 hours to enroll. Due to increased numbers of students required to enroll in TK, please note space is very limited and will be determined on a first-come, first served basis.
