Dear Kellogg Families-
It's Teacher Appreciation Week! This year we have focused on kindness and showing appreciation at Kellogg, and we are encouraging students and families to reach out and thank a Kellogg staff member that has positively impacted your year. A handwritten note is a gift that brings a smile for years to come. Thank you for helping our staff feel appreciated this week in either big or small ways.
We are continuing with state testing over the next two weeks in English Language Arts and Math.

8th grade College Field Trip
Dear Kellogg Families- We hope that your family had a relaxing and recharging Spring Break! As we enter the final two months of school, there are plenty of exciting activities and events to look forward to. We begin our journey into state testing this week with the state science test on Wednesday for our 8th grade students. Please help them get good sleep, eat a healthy breakfast, and come prepared to do their very best on the test. During the testing period, our 7th graders will be in an assembly with a local FBI agent who specializes in Internet Crime and Child Safety. She is coming to talk to our 7th graders about how to use the Internet safely and inform them on how to protect themselves and their digital/online self. Please ask your students about what they learned during the assembly.
