Principal Paw Notes!

Principal ComeforoThis week is the final week of scheduled PARCC testing! We are quite proud of the effort that our students put in over the past several weeks. Since we won't receive the results back until August, we will be administering additional in-house, end-of-year (EOY) assessments including RI and i-Ready to give us a more immediate gauge on how much our students have learned this school year.

I hope to see many of you this Sunday at the Capitol Hill Classic! I'm excited to be running in the race alongside of SHMS faculty and members of the Capitol Hill Cluster community. This is a major fundraiser for the PTA, and we could use your support! Please consider pledging on your child's behalf. Students should have brought their individual pledge pages home. If you need access to your custom webpage, try typing the following URL: with your child's first initial and last name at the end (my name in red). If you have any difficulty, please feel free to send me an email.
