March is a very busy month. Please check the calendar of upcoming events below (read below) and make sure to check your child’s backpack for flyers, listen to our Connect Ed phone messages, check our website and read our emails. We invite you all to attend our annual Open House and Science Fair on March 17th. Our Open House event will start at 6:00 p.m. with the teachers’ opening of their classroom doors as well as the auditorium opening for your visitation to our Science Fair. You will have the flexibility of visiting the auditorium and the classrooms any time between 6:00 and 7:00 p.m.
We are continuing our series of Common Core State Standards Parent Workshops. Our third session is scheduled for March 25th at 6pm and the topic will be Math. Parents of all grade levels are welcome at this workshop since we will have a general session followed by grade level specific break-out sessions. Please be aware that this evening of learning is for adults only, no children will be admitted.
All students in grades 3-5 will be taking the new Standards Based Assessment in April and May so please become as knowledgeable as possible about it by attending our workshops and going online to http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sa/practicetest.asp where you can find not only practice tests but can link to other sources of information. Since this assessment must be taken on a computer or iPad, only 4-5 classes will be testing at one time. All third graders will test in the Computer Lab while 4th and 5th graders will test in their own classrooms using iPads. Please be aware that on testing days, students will be expected to eat breakfast before the morning bell rings (the old fashin way) so they may start taking the test as soon as possible after they enter the classroom. This way, they will all have sufficient time each day of testing to complete a section, or as much of a section as possible. The test is not timed so students will have the amount of time they need to complete each section.
Our last Early Dismissal Tuesday will be March 24th so please make sure to mark your calendars to pick up your child at 2:40pm every day of the week beginning the week of April 7th.
I wish your children and your family a wonderful and restful spring break.
