New Crosssing Guard Procedures!

New Crossing Guard Procedures!

In an effort to ensure student safety, we have changed the procedures for students crossing the street. All of our crossing guards have been trained by the Washington Unified Director of Transportation as well as the WSPD. Crossing guards are now crossing the students from sidewalk to sidewalk rather than standing in the middle of the intersection.  This method helps to ensure that traffic stops completely before the students enter the crosswalk.  Students shall wait on the sidewalk until they are instructed to enter the crosswalk. Please contact Ms. Koerwitz if you have any questions.

Thank you for your help and support in ensuring our students safety.

SBAC Computer Assessments Coming!

SBAC Computer Assessments Coming!

SBAC Computer Assessments will begin for all students in grades third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth on Monday, March 23, 2015, and will take place for a month.  Each student will have about a seven to eight hour test time on the computers and we spread that time out over a period of days so students can have enough time to complete the tests.  The tests will cover the subjects of math and English.  Take the SBAC practice tests online to see how they are.  The link is located below.  Thanks, Mrs. Smith



Here is the link to the SBAC Practice tests!  They are open to anyone to see what the SBAC practice tests are like.  Thanks, Mrs. Smith

Dinner with a Scientist!

Dinner With A Scientist!

             Our Scientist was Brian Scott.  He is from Ottawa and lives in West Sacramento, California.  Just a coincidence.  He graduated from The University of Ottawa with a Masters Degree in Biochemistry.  He develops and improves enzymes for degrading cellulose.  He has worked for two companies, Iogen Corporation and Novozymes.  He works at Novozymes in Davis, California.  He spent a lot of time with the students talking about his job and how it relates to science!
