A Message from the Principal

     Congratulations to our third through fifth grade students who have successfully completed their state testing otherwise known as CAASPP. Each student participated in four different assessments. Two were computer-assisted tests – one for Math and one for English Language Arts. The other two were performance tasks also in Math and English Language Arts. Thanks to the students who gave their best to show us what they have learned. We will now focus on our site-based assessments for the next two weeks. All students in kindergarten through fifth grade will be assessed in our district wide assessment known as the NWEA. This assessment will give us grade level proficiency scores as well as individual student academic growth scores in the areas of Math and English Language Arts. We use these scores to provide proper support for each student in the area of enrichment or interventions. Please remind your students to rest well, eat well and give their best effort so we can provide the best academic support for your child.

      Interspersed with all of our assessments in May will be a month packed full of activities. May is generally the busiest month of the school year and this year is no exception. On May 9th, Leadership students will be taking a walking field trip to City Hall to find out how the city leaders work. On May 10th, our kindergartners will be participating in Kinder College Day at Simpson University. Kindergarten and first grades will head to Turtle Bay Exploration Park on the 15th. May 16th will be packed full of events including the 5th graders traveling to Shasta Lake School for their orientation assembly, Site Council and Open House followed by our family outdoor activities starting at 6:00. Friday the 17th we will have our monthly assembly and 5th graders will be heading to Shasta Caverns. May 23rd 3rd graders visit Old Shasta and Parent Club meets at 2:30. May 24th is the annual Talent Show starting at 9:00.  On May 28th the Volunteer Breakfast will include grade level music performances starting at 8:00 in the morning. May 31 will be our Math Fair. The final assembly will be on June 4th to celebrate end of the year accomplishments. Kindergarten Promotion is scheduled for June 5th at 9:00, which will immediately be followed by the staff vs 5th grade kickball game. Don’t forget the last day of school is a minimum day to help you get a jump-start on the summer.

     You can see May will be an exciting month as we finish off the school year.
