State CAASPP Testing Continues!

Our 3rd graders did great this week!  The annual State Testing (CAASPP) continues the next 2 weeks for:

Week of May 13th: Coral, Aqua, & Green

Week of May 20th: Orange, and 5th and 8th grade Science (CAST)

A good test can identify a child's strengths and weaknesses and show where he or she needs extra help. At school, we talk about the purpose and importance of testing. And we practice various test-taking skills such as following directions and using time wisely. There are also some things parents/guardians can do to help your child do better on tests. 

Before a Test, Children Need: 

ƒ a full night's sleep 

ƒ a good breakfast 

ƒ comfortable school clothing 

ƒ a little understanding if they're anxious or upset.

Helpful Tips and Reminders on How to Talk With Your Child About Tests:

ƒ Mention that you value tests because they are designed to help children learn better. 

ƒ Encourage your child to take the test seriously and do as well as possible, but reassure your child that he or she will not be in trouble for items missed. 

ƒ Never add pressure in the form of threats or rewards attached to test results. Do not make comparisons to siblings. 

ƒ Emphasize that every child is unique in terms of strengths and learning styles and deserves to be loved for that uniqueness. 

Big Day of Giving - BIG THANKS!

Thank you to all of our families who generously donated to the Big Day of Giving benefitting our school garden! We raised $4,819 from 39 donors.  This money will help us continue to maintain and grow our garden as well as provide valuable garden docent lessons to all of our students.  Please contact Mrs. Thomas as if you are interested in volunteering or being a part of the garden committee.  Follow along the garden’s progress here:
