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.
