We tell all students to pick up their lunch in the cafeteria. We do not call the classrooms to let them know there is a lunch in the office.

 PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

 
Dear Parents,
It’s that time when we start getting ready for our new testing system 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
Throughout the school year, teachers have been working hard to make sure our students are prepared for the rigor of the SBAC test by using Common Core Standards and our math adopted digital program on a daily basis.  It is important for students to stay focus 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 need 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:
o   Make sure students come to school daily on time. Attendance is very important.
o   Make sure students get enough sleep.
o   Students complete homework daily.
o   Students read 20-30 minutes, practice math facts daily.
o   If your child needs help, please contact your child’s teacher.
o   Please feel free to email your child’s teacher(s), should you have questions or concerns.
o   If your child’s teacher asks your child to stay for extra help, please make sure your child stays.
Thank you for your continual support!
 
Mayte Ramirez, Principal
