Freiler Staff Parent Association Meetings 
Please join us for our FSPA monthly meetings  at 6:30 p.m. on the second Wednesday of the month. All parents are welcome to come!
 
 
Freiler Stars Attendance Banners
Please make sure your students come to school each day and on time. Consider this: A student who arrives to school late each day by 3 minutes misses over 500 minutes of instruction each year.  That is the equivalent of 9 hours of missed instruction.
Students cannot learn if they are not in school. Students with high rates of absenteeism have a harder time getting their work done and often end up scoring poorly on assessments. Please help our students get to school on time-  It does make a difference!
Each class has an attendance banner that is filled in each day when they have perfect attendance. When the banner is complete , students receive a recognition treat.
Parents please call the office whenever your student is absent at (209) 830-3309.
 
Common Core State Standards
The Common Core is changing the way we teach our students, and changing the types of work our students are doing. 
 
To find out more about the Common Core, visit the TUSD Common Core Information Page.
 
Another great common core website is www.commoncoreworks.org. This site has great resources for parents. 
 
 
CALIFORNIA ASSESSMENT OF STUDENT PERFORMANCE AND PROGRESS (CAASPP)
The results of the Smarter Balanced Summative Assessments in English language arts/literacy and mathematics, part of the state’s California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), are scheduled to be released later this month (September 2015).  Students in grades 3-8 and grade 11 across the state took this test last spring.  It was the first statewide administration of this new test.   For more information about the assessments and the score reports that will be mailed home for all students who took the test, CLICK HERE

 PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

 

 

Dear Freiler Parents,

It’s hard to believe that we are nearing the time for our new testing system to be fully implemented with our students this year.  Smarter Balance Testing Window begins February 25-May27th.
During the spring 2016 Smarter Balance Testing, all students will take on-line computer based tests in both content areas of English-language arts and mathematics.  The testing window will open in late February, and districts/schools will be assigned a specific testing period.  The teachers will be assigned a weekly schedule to go into the labs to take their tests.  More information about the Smarter Balance test and testing system, as well as practice tests and the corresponding technology requirements, are available at:  http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sa/smarterbalanced.asp.  Here is another parent resource that will help you understand the new standards: www.commoncoreworks.org/domain/114
January has welcomed back our students from vacation and they are acclimating themselves back into learning. Common Core Standards and our math adopted digital program are in full use on a daily basis preparing our students for the rigor of the SBAC test. Students are focusing on their academic goals as they prepare for the end of the 2nd trimester ending on February 12th. Performing well in class and on the state assessments helps students to build a strong academic foundation, which in turn determines the classes they take in high school and college. Parents, we are counting on your support to reinforce academics at home by asking your students to focus on their classwork, homework, and studying for the tests. You can support your students by doing the following:
1. Make sure students come to school daily on time. Attendance is extremely important.
2. Students complete homework daily.
3. Students read, practice math facts and practice math using IXL daily.
4. If your child needs help, please contact your child’s teacher.
5. If your child’s teacher asks your child to stay for extra help, please make sure your child stays. We have before and after open lab times for students use.
6. You may go to the California Department of Education’s website http://www.cde.ca.gov for more information regarding the state testing.
Safety is Our TOP Priority - Please do not use the first parking lot row as a drop off for your students. It blocks the view and ability of others who are properly using the parking stalls to drop off their students. Thank you.

Karen Alcorn, Principal
