7th Street Families:

It’s April and spring is in the air.  I hope everyone had a fantastic spring break and are geared up for a busy last quarter.  We have lots of testing to do including CMAS, DIBELS, and our final round of MAPS.  We also have many activities as well as graduations planned.  I will post dates on my newsletters and continue to have Christine send out reminders on our messaging system and Facebook.

On a different note, we have had some problems with the building lately.  Kalie Gatlin wrote a nice article in the Bulldog Bulletin about some of the biggest issues we have had this year.  They include us not having heat in the all-purpose room all year except for a few space heaters due to us not being able to get parts for the mini-splits.  We also had to replace a water line from the main to the school in order to prevent the pipe from bursting and flooding the crawl space.  Finally, you may have heard your kids talk about not being able to use the restroom for 45 minutes twice the week before spring break due to our sewer line needing to be replaced.  The line was replaced from the building to Main Street; however, with both line replacements I have fears about what is going on underneath our school.  Kalie’s article does more justice to our problems as she has pictures of some of the water line pipe and the parking lot issue.  You can locate the article on our Facebook page within the Bulldog Bulletin.

On a positive note, the district did submit a BEST grant to hopefully help fund a new building and we are very hopeful.  CDE has been very positive about our application.  We will know in late May if we receive the funding.  It is a very exciting time for our Elementary school!

Take care,

Principal Forst
