From the Desk of Mr. Hopkins

It is difficult to believe but we are nearing the end of another school year. Although it may seem very close to our students, it is so important that they finish the year strong, and in order to do that we need your support. Spring brings with it several very important assessments and the results serve to guide many of our decisions at the build-ing and district level. ISAT testing will begin on April 17th and iStation (formerly the IRI) will begin not long after that. Please help us by seeing that your students get plenty of rest and a nutritious breakfast every day. Remember, breakfast at school is served every day and is provided at no cost to you. If you need anything else to ensure a pro-ductive day for your students do not hesitate to let us know. We have numerous community resources available to provide you with any help that you may need.

The change in weather means that it is once again time to make improvements to our native plant garden. This year we would like to add edging and are in need of a landscaper to hire. If you know of anyone, please let us know. We will also be adding some feature boulders composed of rocks that can be found in our state. Signage will also be going up explaining the geology of these boulders as well as identifying plants that we will be plant-ing. I am hopeful that this garden is something that can serve as a resource to the community and can become a source of pride for our students. Any ideas or help with this project will be well received.

Lastly, thank you for maintaining such a positive attitude this school year. As I look back on all that has occurred that is a real testament to the grit and perseverance of the Purple Sage Community, a community that I am proud to be a part of. Thank you as always for partnering with me in educating your students. Make it a wonderful Spring Break!
