Dear Abingdon Families,

It is hard for us to believe that this will be our last newsletter for the 2020-2021 school year, and what a year it has been! We have all worked very hard to meet the academic, social, and behavioral goals for each student.

Standards of Learning assessments (SOLs) for grades 3rd-5th are right around the corner! We ask that you limit absences, tardies, and early dismissals as we work diligently to ensure that our students are prepared to do their best on the tests. Performance data from spring SOL testing will play a critical role as our division starts to design instructional and remedial programs to help students catch up after a year of school closures and extended periods of virtual instruction. These tests will provide critical information on where our students are excelling and where they are struggling. We want our students to do their best and plan to use the data to help better serve our students next year. In-person SOL testing will take place May 24-June 8. See the schedule in the Announcements and on the calendar on the main page.

The month of May is a time to show our appreciation to those who work with our children at Abingdon. We would like for you to join us as we recognize our PAW-SOME teachers/staff. Teacher Appreciation Week is May 3-7, School Nurse Appreciation Day is May 6, and Cafeteria Appreciation Day is May 7. Our school staff works hard to provide quality educational experiences for your child.

Kindergarten and VPI (preschool) registration survey opened on April 21st. If you have a child ready for kindergarten next year, please complete the survey for Abingdon. Our registrar will contact you to schedule an in-person appointment.

Thank you for all you do to support our Abingdon school family!
Your partners in education,
Mrs. Anna Harwood and Mrs. Susan Andrews

Celebrating our schools, our students and our community!
