SUNDAY NIGHT EMAIL UPDATE:
Weekly email update for April 21-25

I am happy to report we have completed our state testing.  The students and staff handled the challenges of the new system very well.  We are told the results from this year are only being used to evaluate the test, not student results.

 Please note:  April 22 is an early release day.  It is not listed on your MTE deskpad calendar.

I am looking forward to seeing many of you next Sunday at Max's Mile!  We are combining our celebration of 25 years with the walk.  Please share with any of your neighbors who may have attended Mission Trail in the past.  We will have a balloon launch (with environmentallyfriendly balloons) and plant a tree in honor of the anniversary.  

As always, please contact me with any questions, comments or concerns.  

"It is a great day to be a bulldog!"
