Dear Hirsch Families,
I cannot believe how quickly this year has gone!  We have only three months left of the school year, but it is a very important three months.
This month, our character pillar is Citizenship.  Teachers will be working with our students on the many aspects of what it means to be a good citizen.  Citizenship (Obeying the law, voting, paying taxes, serving on jury duty, making the community a better place) in the classroom is obeying the school and classroom rules, participating in class, and making the classroom and/or school a better place.  Our Proud Patriot Assembly for Citizenship will be on Friday, April 8th.
The second trimester has just finished and teachers are preparing third through fifth grade students for Smarter Balanced assessments, which are new computer-based tests that measure student knowledge of California's English language arts/literacy and mathematics standards. These new assessments replace the former paper-based, multiple-choice assessments for students in grades three through eight and eleven. The first statewide administration of these assessments took place in spring 2015. Smarter Balanced Assessments are part of a new testing program called the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), which replaces the Standardized Testing and Reporting Program that expired on July 1, 2013.  Students at Hirsch will take these assessments during the month of April.
Student participation and engagement is extremely important in classrooms.  If students are absent, they miss out on the collaboration of working with other students.  Our attendance average for the first seven months of school is 95.66%.  The District’s goal for all schools is 98%.  Please try to schedule appointments and/or trips during non-school days.  Let’s work together to bring this number up.  J
Thank you!
