Smarter Balanced/ CST Testing Tips

Testing Window is April 7- May 16.

Testing Tips

  • Keep a positive attitude about tests
  • Make sure that your child gets enough sleep on the night before the test
  • Ensure that your child eats a healthy breakfast and avoid heavy foods that may make him/ her groggy and avoid high sugar foods that may make him/ her hyper
  • Make sure that your child gets up early enough so that he/she will be on time to school
  • Talking about the test with your child can relieve stress about test taking
  • Make sure your child attends school everyday during the test.  Make-up testing can be very stressful to some children

Lost and Found

Friday, April 11, 2014 will be the last day to look through the lost and found for your child's items.  All remaining items will be donated to charity.

Volunteers Needed

If you are interested in volunteering, please see Yazmin Cruz in the main office.  

Volunteers are needed for: 

  • Drop and Go Valet Program
  • Breakfast in the Classroom

If you can give 30 minutes one or two days a week from 7:45-8:15 we could really use your help.

Remember you must complete an application in the main office and have a current TB test.  Any volunteer who works more than 16 hours a week must have a Live Scan completed through LAUSD.

Drop and Go Zone

The Drop and Go zone will be located on 247th St. The zone will be clearly marked with orange cones. To enter the zone you must approach the school from Narbonne Ave. We are asking that the Moon Ave. gate be for pedestrian traffic only.

Remember, for this program to be successful we need your cooperation. Please make sure you:


  • Have your child's backpack ready to go so they can quickly exit the vehicle
  • Have your child sitting on the right passenger side of the vehicle
  • Say your goodbyes before you enter the Drop and Go Zone
  • Never let your child exit your vehicle outside of the zone

Thank You

Mrs. Kimura


Test Results



Dear Lomita Magnet Families,

   March was a very busy month with Spell-a-thon and Read Across America.  We had a very successful Spell-a-thon and I would like to thank all of the families who so generously contributed to this fundraiser.  The money raised from the fundraiser goes directly back to the classrooms for instructional materials.

     Study those math facts!  Math Madness is well underway.  We still have to more Math Madness Fridays.

     The Smarter Balanced Field Test for students grades 3-5 will begin this month.  The testing window for Lomita Magnet will be April 7th - May 16th.  Your child's teacher will let you know when your child's classroom will be taking the test during this window.  All testing will be done online through the use of a desktop computer or iPad.   Many of our children today are very tech savvy, but you may want to take some time to have your child take the practice test at home to help prepare for this new way of testing.  You can access the practice test at: http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sa/practicetest.asp

     As I visit classrooms, the students and teachers are working very hard as we move into full implementation of the Common Core State Standards.

     As always, I want to tell you how much I appreciate your partnership in making Lomita Magnet the best school in ESC-South.
