April 5, 2023 - English


Dear Families,


In case you missed it, at last week’s principal’s coffee, we discussed the upcoming state standardized tests (CAASPP/SBAC) for grades 3-5.  Check out these slides to learn more.

Our message to our students is that these assessments are a way for students to show what they know and celebrate their learning.  At the same time, these tests are just one measure of how they are doing academically and they do not define who students are.  Here are some ways you can help:

  • Remind your child to charge their chromebook each night.  Bring a pair of wired headphones daily.

  • Encourage students to do their best, but not to stress.  Reinforce that these tests are just one way to show what they know at that moment in time.

  • Have your child eat a regular breakfast and go to bed at a reasonable time.

  • We test most mornings before 10 am--please avoid scheduling any appointments during this time.  


Have a safe and wonderful spring break!


In partnership,

Principal Cyndee

Water Bottles

The weather is finally getting sunny and warmer!  Be sure to send your child to school with a water bottle daily, especially on days when students have PE. Write your child’s name on the bottle so it can be returned if misplaced.  Students can refill their water bottles at the refill stations at the drinking fountains.

Electives selection for grades 5-7 closes Friday

All 5th-7th graders should select their course electives online by April 7, 2023 through the PowerSchool portal. Fifth- through seventh-grade parents, please look for an email in your inbox dated March 24 with links to course catalogs and directions. Please log in to your PowerSchool portal account (either student’s or parent’s) to help your student select his/her electives.  If you have difficulty with PowerSchool, please contact your school secretary. If you have not confirmed your child's enrollment for the 2023-24 school year, elective course selection will not be available.

Be Sunwise: Sunny days are ahead. Protect your skin.

While some exposure to sunlight can be enjoyable, too much can be dangerous. Take these steps to protect yourself and your children - who are often outside daily.

Apply sunscreen to all exposed skin using a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher that provides broad-spectrum protection from both ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) rays. Reapply every two hours, even on cloudy days, and after swimming or sweating.

Traveling during spring break? Use extra caution near water, snow, and sand that reflect the damaging rays of the sun, which can increase your chance of sunburn.

Health and Wellness Parenting Tip: Praise

It is natural for us to pay attention to behaviors that are irritating, worrisome, or make us want to disappear from embarrassment. Usually, when our child is calm, quiet, and self-entertained, we breathe a sigh of relief. However, this inadvertently teaches our child that they can get our attention by being disruptive. The good news is that we can reverse this pattern by paying attention to our child’s positive behaviors.

To learn more parenting tips click here.

To praise positive behaviors:

Try praising something positive that your child is doing each morning and evening (for example, “Good job sharing with your sibling”). We are used to noticing disruptive behaviors, so praising your child’s positive behaviors will take some practice and patience – but will ultimately benefit both you and your child.

This tip came directly from the free, online Everyday Parenting program created by parenting expert, Dr. Kazdin.
