SBAC TESTING STARTS ON TUESDAY, MARCH 25TH

Students in grades 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, & 8 will all be taking a state test on the computers this year!  The test is called SBAC, Smarter Balanced Assessment!  In order to accommodate all of the students, approximately 600, in the computer labs for the tests, the school will be closing the labs to all other classes so the students can take the tests.  The computer labs will both be closed from Tuesday, March 25th to Friday, April 11th.  The state of California is counting this as a practice test this year and none of the scores will be counted.  They are testing the process of this new kind of test!!  Students still need to do their best and practice taking a test on the computer this year.  This is the way of the future!!  If you want to learn more about the SBAC testing you can go to the locker on this page and look up online information from the state of California.  Thanks, Mrs. Smith

SPARK BOARD

SPARK stands for Smart People Performing Random Acts of Kindness!  There is a SPARK Board hanging in the school cafeteria.  Students can post any act of kindness on the board.  You can use a post-it to write about a time with someone was kind to you and post it on the board.  

ATTENDANCE LETTERS!!

ATTENDANCE UPDATES!!

  All absences have to be cleared within 72 hours so please call Holly or Carrie to clear your child's absence ASAP!  Thanks, Mrs. Smith

Our school district is using a new attendance computer system called S I & A,  which will be generating the attendance letters automatically.  This is a new system which will really help our school monitor attendance and tardies more closely.  All students need to be in school everyday on time in the state of California.  In order to provide a quality education for all children we need to see their smiling faces in school everyday.  Thanks for supporting our school.
