CAASPP  - State Testing
         The CAASPP (CA Assessment of Student Performance and Progress) State Testing will begin next week for some grade levels and the following weeks for others.  Please see the schedule below.  There are two Language Arts tests and two Mathematics tests.  Each test takes approximately two hours to complete.  Students will be testing for approximately 1.5-2 hours per day over a span of 4 school days to complete the tests.   Students in 5th and 8th grade will also be taking a Science Test.
Attendance:  Attendance during testing is critical.  Please try not to pull your child from school during testing days.  We are required to test at least 95% of our students and we will be pulling students out of class to make up tests if they are absent.  We would much rather have your child test with their classmates instead of being pulled at a later date. 
Headphones/Earbuds:  The  online testing comes with audio clips and prompts and students are required to use earbuds.  We are encouraging students to bring their own set of headphones or earbuds if they wish.  Although we do have earbuds for students to use, they are not the best quality. 
Testing Dates:
April 17th - 20th:  All 7th and 8th graders
April 24th - 27th:  All 4th and 5th
May 1st - 4th:  All 3rd graders and 6th graders
May 8th - 11th:  All students who have missed a day of testing
Note:  Students will be testing during the morning hours between 8:30-12:00 on the days listed above.   
If you have any questions about testing, please contact Mr. Maslyar at (209) 830-3325 or

Welcome to Poet-Christian K-8 School!

    Poet-Christian is a wonderful school community.  We have terrific students, supportive families, and a dedicated staff.  This is my 18th year at Poet and I have enjoyed working with a huge number of families and students over the years.  Our PTSA and staff works hard to provide our students with a variety of activities, events, and programs.  It is always great to see students and families participating in school functions.  These activities help us build strong bonds and enable us to maintain a positive and supportive learning environment.  The very best part of being at a K-8 school is seeing our students grow from eager young kindergarteners into terrific young teenagers.  The transformation over time is a wonderful experience.  I have enjoyed many years at Poet and look forward to many more with this caring and supportive community.  Poet has the best families, students, and staff and it is truly a special place to be every day!
    I have a B.A. in Mathematics and an M.A. in Educational Leadership and began my educational career in 1991.   I taught Math for two years at Franklin High School in Stockton and then for six years at Clover Middle School in Tracy until 1999.  I was the Asst. Principal at Hirsch for one year before coming to Poet-Christian in the Fall of 2000.  Poet has been my home ever since.  It has been a wonderful journey working with so many different students, families, and teachers over the years and I’m very happy to be a part of a great learning community.
