As many of you know the former state assessment program – TCAP – has been replaced by the new CMAS – Colorado Measures of Academic Success. This spring students in grades 3-11 will take the new on-line assessments in the areas of English/language arts and mathematics. For the first round of testing the dates are March 3rd -March 27th. Students will complete three units for English/language arts and two units for mathematics. These new assessments are intended to measure the level of command a student has on the Common Core State Standards. Please be sure to look for a testing schedule to come home in February. As in the past we ask that you try and not schedule appointments or vacations during the testing window, it is so important that students complete each test in each content area.
If you are interested in seeing what the new assessments look like and what types of questions your student will be given to show their knowledge and application of skills simply go to http://parcc.pearson.com/sample-items – there you will have a choice of selecting the level for grades 3-5, 6-8 or high school. For each level there are sample items for English/language arts and mathematics.
It’s coming! Our first annual benefit concert is Mo’ Mungus at Spice Island Grill. Be on the lookout for more details coming soon!!
We may no longer allow families to bring food in to school for birthdays or holidays. Due to changes in the law and funding rules, we are not allowed to provide students with treats or snacks at school. Students may not receive any food that has trans-fats and there are many allergy issues that can be dangerous.
A parent may still purchase food and bring it in to have lunch with his/her child but the food may not be shared with any other students. Students will continue to bring their own snacks to eat during the school day. The rule for snacks is that they be healthy food, not candy or junk food.
*****We are allowed to continue to offer food that is part of our curriculum so our cultural feasts will not be affected.
Here is the 2014 – 2015 school calendar!
