The end of the year is fast approaching and we have many exciting opportunities ahead. Teachers and students are working very hard to be prepared for the SOLs this year. Please mark your calendar for your student's testing days. It is really important for them to get a good nights sleep, a healthy, protein filled breakfast, and come to school ready to show what they know. We do not want any student to be stressed over the SOLs, but we do want them to do their best. Please review at home. The state website has released SOLs like what we have sent home. http://www.doe.virginia.gov/testing/sol/released_tests/index.shtml is where you can find them. We also have a number of field trips coming up, so please make sure to check out the calendar and come join the fun.
On a sad note, Amy Angelo, former Assistant Principal at Pearson, passed away April 9th. Her cancer returned and within a week, she was gone. It has reminded me that we all must enjoy each day. I am so thankful that I am here at Pearson.
